FLOATING SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAICS

Most current Photo Voltaic solar systems are typically designed for land-based applications and require large tracts of land which could otherwise be used for agriculture, housing or industrial construction. The Floating Solar Photo Voltaic (FSPV) market is a new growing market. In general, the cost of the water surface is much lower than the cost of land.
Solar panels installed on land face reduction of yield, as the land gets heated up. When such panels are installed on a floating platform, the heating problem is solved to a great extent. A floating solar power station would prove to be a revolutionary step as it could solve the perennial problem of land. 
A normal FSPV can be installed on all types of water bodies like lakes, saltwater lakes, reservoirs, irrigation ponds, small water sources, dams, rivers etc. Applications can also be extended to Water retention pond, Drinking water pond, Aquaculture pond, Water treatment reservoir, Hydroelectric Dam, Industrial water pond, Quarry la…

Components of Grid-Connected PV System

Grid-Connected PV Systems consists of solar panels that provide most of their power needs during the daytime, while still being connected to the local electrical grid network during the night time. A grid-connected photovoltaic power system, or grid-connected PV power system is an electricity generating solar PV power system that is connected to the utility grid. A grid-connected PV system consists of one or several inverters, a power conditioning unit and grid connection equipment along with solar panels. They range from small residential and commercial rooftop systems to large utility-scale solar power stations. Unlike stand-alone power systems, a grid-connected system rarely includes an integrated battery solution, as they are still very expensive. When conditions are right, the grid-connected PV system supplies the excess power, beyond consumption by the connected load, to the utility grid.
In a grid-connected PV system, also known as a “grid-tied”, or “on-grid” solar system, the P…

Solar Power Products for Homes and Organisations

SOLAR PRODUCTS
Solar Panels: A solar power plant is based on the conversion of sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaics (PV), or indirectly using concentrated solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses, mirrors, and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaics converts light into electric current using the photoelectric effect. Photovoltaics were initially solely used as a source of electricity for small and medium-sized applications, from the calculator powered by a single solar cell to remote homes powered by an off-grid rooftop PV system. As the cost of solar electricity has fallen, the number of grid-connected solar PV systems has grown into the millions and utility-scale solar power stations with hundreds of megawatts are being built. Solar PV is rapidly becoming an inexpensive, low-carbon technology to harness renewable energy from the Sun.

Advantages of On-Grid and Off-Grid Power Plant

What is On Grid Power System? The solar power system which is connected to the main power supply is called as the on-grid solar power system. They are also known as grid-tie system or integrated system. Using this system will help you to get consist electricity. If your solar power system can’t provide the necessary electricity at certain times you will get power from the grid. And if your system produces more electricity you can give to the grid and will have monetary gains. Either this may calculate the total electricity you took from the grid or through some incentive policy.


Advantages of On-Grid Power Plant:

Utilise the 100% power and supply to Govt. if solar power is not in use.Reduce power and diesel consumption. Fully utilises the solar in first priority and then remaining power take from the grid.Saves on both electricity cost and diesel bills.An economically viable system where battery bank is not required.Savings from the system lead to a payback period of up to 5 years.
