How and Where One Should Install the Weather Monitoring Station on the Solar Plant?

Location of the weather monitoring station significantly affects the data gathered and reported by it. It is observed that many times, WMS is installed at such locations that it gives incorrect data about the various parameters, killing the entire purpose of installing a weather monitoring station.

Sun Tracking Solutions For CSP And PV Solar Plants For Improved Efficiency

To generate maximum power from the solar PV modules, the solar panels must be pointed in the right direction so as to capture most of the energy from the sun rays. A solar panel collects the maximum solar radiation when the sun rays strike it exactly at 90 degrees. Any misalignment will lower down the energy being captured by the modules.

Role Of Tilt Sensors In Solar Tracking

Tilt sensors significantly impact the output of solar power plants (CSP) and hence, are commonly used for solar tracking. Though the importance of solar tracking and the boost in production due to it is proven, there is a lot of confusion around how this systems works and what are the expected gains out of it.
