Intelligent performance check of pv operation using satellite data (PVSAT-2)

Intelligent performance check of pv operation using satellite data (PVSAT-2)

Objective

PVSAT-2 will set up an advanced remote performance check for PV systems. The yields of a system will be calculated based on solar irradiances derived from satellite data . Superior to existing routines, PVSAT-2 will include: A cheap hardware device integrated into the PV system for automated measurements and two-way communication with a central client-server decision making system; A central knowledge-based decision making system, which will analyse the performance of the PV system pn a daily basis, and will be able to detect system failures and its possible causes; An improved irradiance calculation scheme. It will increase accuracy by using additional on-line ground data for an kriging-of-the-differences interpolation and supports the decision-making system by supplying information on the expected quality of the derived irradiance values.
