Soiling of PV modules leads to a cost of lost energy production, but there is also the cost of cleaning. Soiling does not occur at a constant rate throughout the year, or across a plant, so cleaning schedules should be flexible and optimized. Dust IQ provides the data for you to decide when and where to clean.

How Ceilometers can Contribute to Solar Applications

The energy yield in solar applications depends on the atmospheric transmission and scattering. Join this webinar to learn how our ceilometers provide data on clouds, precipitation, cloud cover and particles in the air and can thus be a useful supplement to radiation measurement methods.

Bifacial PV: Monitoring Rearside Irradiance and Albedo

Bifacial PV modules are a hot topic, but how should you monitor the irradiance reaching the rear of the module to quantify how much extra power can be produced? Does it make a difference if it is fixed or tracked? How do you measure the surface albedo? Watch now to hear about our experience and our recommendations.

O&M companies need to ensure that pyranometers are measuring as they should. Are they installed correctly? What regular maintenance should be done? When should they be calibrated? Can you make a performance check between calibrations? How can down-time be minimized? Find out now!

DNI, DHI and GHI: How to Measure Them All, Up to Reference Quality

Watch Video

For concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) and concentrating solar power (CSP/thermal) it is critical to measure direct normal irradiance (DNI). But, it is also important for tracking PV modules. On a cloudy day, all the radiation from the sun is diffuse/scattered (DHI) and it can be useful to measure this. We tell you how.

Smart Weather Sensors: Monitoring Meteorological Parameters for PV PR

Other than solar irradiance and PV module temperature, there are a number of other meteorological factors that affect the plant performance ratio; as described in IEC 61724-1. The most convenient, and lowest maintenance, solution is an all-in-one smart weather station. Lufft and Kipp & Zonen have what you need.
