Performance evaluation of plants

WINDFOR provides technical assistance for the performance assessment of photovoltaic plants in order to acquire useful information both to improve their performances and  estimate their future performance.

The technical assistance services may include:

  • Analysis of type and quality of the available documentation on the operation of the plant of interest
  • Assessment of the availability allocated to the Balance of Plant (BOP)
  • Analysis of possible operation anomalies of the plant components and the corrective actions undertaken
  • Analysis of possible operation anomalies of electromechanical components (disconnections from the grid, inadvertent opening of switches, transformer, photovoltaic module and inverter faults, electrical joint and terminal failures , etc.)
  • Comparison between the expected production in the development phase of the plant and the actual obtained during the commercial operation
  • Analysis of the documentation relating to the electricity sold and absorbed by the plant
  • Estimation of the expected future production of the plant (using Artificial Neural Network)
