SOLAR OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE

  • Solar power projects have increased significantly in size and scale over the years, and so have their operations and maintenance (O&M) requirements. Project developers with assets hundreds of megawatts of assets are now focusing on improving project performance to increase their returns and reduce the possibility of downtime and generation losses.
  • The traditional O&M model, which was primarily limited to security, cleaning of modules and cutting of vegetation, has now evolved into a more complex task encompassing performance monitoring, optimisation, quick fault diagnosis and repair, and extension of project life. Specialised O&M service providers with highly advanced digital tools have now entered the market that offer a range of these services at competitive costs.
  • Post-Covid, the focus has shifted to reducing manpower requirements in O&M and most developers are now adopting digital and automation tools in their assets. This also has an added benefit of cost reduction since manpower contributes to the bulk of the O&M cost.
  • Drones are now being used for the visual inspection of solar panels and related equipment at large solar parks. Meanwhile, robotic solutions have been deployed at several projects for cleaning of solar modules. Many of these robots can also work in dry cleaning applications.
  • On the monitoring and performance optimisation side, advanced remote monitoring systems have been installed at many projects that help in real time data collection and fault diagnosis.
  • Going a step further, artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques are now being integrated with these monitoring systems to help in predictive maintenance and prevent significant project downtime or expensive equipment replacement.
  • The mission of this conference is to highlight the various opportunities and technology solutions for the solar O&M market in India. The conference will bring together solar project developers, O&M service providers, technology companies and industry experts to share their insights. It provides an opportunity to learn about the operational experience of operators and the technological developments taking place in this space.

BoS FOR SOLAR POWER PLANTS

  • The increase in solar power installations and awareness regarding optimal solar generation has driven the advancements in balance of system (BoS) component technologies. BoS equipment includes all solar project components except solar panels, that is, inverters, mounting structures, trackers, cables and connectors, junction boxes and others.
  • Solar inverter technologies have been evolving over the years. The central inverter technology was dominant initially especially in the utility-scale segment. The growth of rooftop solar has given a push to string inverters, which are now being used in the utility segment as well. Further, with technology advancements, inverters are being made more modular and smarter.
  • Module mounting structures have evolved over the years in terms of weight, material, adaptability and cost, making them durable and sturdy so that they can withstand the weight of solar panels in any weather condition. Solar mounting structures are often equipped with tracking systems that can move the solar panels depending on the position of the sun and can significantly improve the energy output of a solar project.
  • The proper selection and sizing of cables and connectors is important for optimising costs and for ensuring a well-functioning solar project. As panel technologies advance at a rapid pace, the role of the junction boxes is increasingly coming into focus. Further, developments on the module end are leading to advancements in junction box technology.
  • Due to declining solar tariffs and a downward pressure on developers and EPC contractors, there have been concerns regarding the quality of some of these crucial components. Since solar parks are being built to last 25 years, it is important to have quality and reliable equipment that has a long life and does not suffer from frequent breakdowns. Further, there is a need for clear guidelines and standards for components developed for the Indian market.
  • The mission of this conference is to highlight the various technology trends and innovations in the solar BoS market in India. The conference will bring together solar project developers, EPC contractors, manufacturers and industry experts to share their perspective on different equipment used in solar projects.
