LUFFT WHITE PAPER: SIMULTANEOUSLY KEEP AN EYE ON 10 SOLAR PERFORMANCE FACTORS

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.

SEIA WHITE PAPER: HOSTING CAPACITY: USING INCREASED TRANSPARENCY OF GRID CONSTRAINTS TO ACCELERATE INTERCONNECTION PROCESSES,

This paper is the third in SEIA's series on grid modernization and focuses on improving interconnection with hosting capacity analyses. As with the rest of the papers in this series, the experiences of two leading states, California and New York, are examined.

“TODAY’S SMART + SOLAR HOME”

This new resource details the convergence of residential solar and smart home tech and shows how solar delivers utility savings and increased resale value for today’s homeowners.

SUPPORTING THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE EUROPEAN PV INDUSTRY AND MARKETS THROUGH ENHANCED QUALITY

The global Solar Business Technology Association as a partner of the European Technology and Innovation Platform for Photovoltaics (ETIP PV) and a member of ETIP PV Secretariat has prepared a white paper regarding the questions of quality, reliability and performance for the European PV Industry. The PV sector has evolved extremely fast in the last decade and in 2016 crossed the 100 billion EUR turnover threshold. In a context of this fast market development, components are improving constantly, while operators are implementing more efficient processes and PV system prices are dropping dramatically.

PROTHEA WHITE PAPER: UNSUBSIDIZED SOLAR IN ITALY: MARKET RATIONALE AND POTENTIAL

In our view, Italy is on the edge of becoming one of the most attractive country for developing unsubsidized solar PV power plants. The continuous decrease of solar PV equipment cost, together with a positive fiscal framework evolution over the recent past, are driving down the LCOE for utility scale plants, allowing Italy to be a serious candidate for a new boom of utility scale solar development. The paper further discusses the rationales and the key challenges of our view.

SMA WHITE PAPER - TRUE 1,500 V DC TECHNOLOGY FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF PV POWER PLANTS

SMA America compiled a white paper to evaluate the value of 1,500 V DC technology in power plants, citing that optimized stack design results in greater annual power production and higher availability. The paper looks at the role that inverters play in large-scale power plants, and the importance of superior technology to ensure long plant life and high performance.

US DIGITAL WHITE PAPER - HOW THE T7 NETWORKED ABSOLUTE INCLINOMETER DRIVES DOWN THE COST OF SOLAR ENERGY IN CONCENTRATED SOLAR POWER SYSTEMS

Concentrated solar power (CSP) and concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) methodologies generate electricity by focusing a large amount of sunlight onto a much smaller area. To maximize efficiency, the sunlight needs to be accurately focused. Being off by even a single degree could result in a significant drop in efficiency, and the biggest impact to the cost of delivering solar energy is efficiency. As with most systems, the accuracy is limited by the accuracy of the sensors used in that system. There are a number of different types of sensors that can be used in these systems. This paper discusses why an absolute inclinometer is the most effective sensor solution and why the US Digital T7 is superior to other inclinometers available today.

JLM ENERGY WHITE PAPER - IS SOLAR PLUS STORAGE RIGHT FOR YOU?

In this white paper you will learn how to gain more control over your utility expenditure and save money, including strategies to monitor and optimize energy use for your commercial building. You will also learn about energy optimization tactics including demand shaving, consumer self-supply and time-of-use arbitrage. WE explain in detail the science behind our plug-and-play MicroStorage product, Phazr, the most cost effective and efficient solution available today.

DYNAPOWER WHITE PAPER - MAXIMIZE PV PRODUCTION WITH ENERGY STORAGE & A DC-TO-DC CONVERTER

Traditional storage plus solar (PV) applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus, or alternatively the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. Here we will examine how a new cost-effective approach of coupling energy storage to existing PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. This new approach leads to higher round trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays, and at the same time opens up new use cases not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage.

SEIA WHITE PAPER: OPENING C&I SOLAR MARKETS WITH C-PACE

This whitepaper provides an overview of C-PACE and how it can be used to encourage the growth of commercial and industrial (C&I) solar markets in the United States.

HUSKEFLUX WHITE PAPER: PYRANOMETERS VERSUS PV REFERENCE CELLS IN OUTDOOR PV SYSTEM PERFORMANCE MONITORING

This white paper investigates when to use pyranometers and when to use reference cells in outdoor PV system performance monitoring. There are different purposes for outdoor PV system monitoring. For organisations monitoring PV system performance at many different locations, possibly employing different PV cell types, use of pyranometers is easy. For O&M organisations, the use of PV reference cells is difficult to manage. IEA and ASTM standards for PV monitoring recommend pyranometers for outdoor PV monitoring. Hukseflux Thermal Sensors offers measurement solutions for the most challenging applications. Our main area of expertise is measurement of heat transfer and thermal quantities such as solar radiation, heat flux and thermal conductivity. Hukseflux sensors, systems and services are offered worldwide via our office in Delft, the Netherlands and local distributors.
