Our solar prediction tools continue to improve as they incorporate computational advances in modeling irradiance, clouds, shade, PV physics, array heat transfer, inverters, and other dynamic situations.
When we speak to the challenges of operating and maintaining solar plants, we often speak of equipment and quality issues related to panels, inverters, substations, transformers, etc.
Felipe Silva Aguilar: Blocking Opponent’s Goals on the Soccer Pitch and Meeting Client’s Goals at a Solar Plant
Felipe Silva Aguilar used to spend his days as a lead defender for a professional soccer team, blocking shots and intercepting passes to prevent his opponents from scoring. Today, Felipe manages a large solar project for in Chile.
Apart from being a full-time robotics engineer, Mike has been volunteering as a Lead Technical Mentor for Citrus Circuits for 13 years now – teaching high school students design, engineering, and programming to build competition-ready robots.
As the renewable energy market continues to explode around the world, the need for highly capable Operation & Maintenance (O&M) companies continues to grow.
Do you have a PV Plant that performs well on sunny days and not so well on cloudy days? The issue may not be your equipment, just your mathematics.
O&M providers should be mindful of two goals. First, they should help you maximize actual equipment capabilities, and they also must help achieve your financial plans.
