Validating a site's potential

Validating a site's potential

Before developing a solar project, monitor the solar irradiance on an identified site thanks to Solar InCell™ and its included solar reference cells. The station is ready-to-use and no wiring is required.

Monitoring a plant's performance

Monitoring a plant's performance

During the operations phase, Solar InCell™ allows to compare the plant’s output with the received solar irradiance at any moment.

Detecting failures and outages

Detecting failures and outages

The real time comparison between the electric production and the incoming irradiance enables to detect outages and failures with great accuracy and no false alarms.

Methodology

Solar InCell™ delivers a real-time solar resource evaluation service through a SaaS (Software as a Service) platform, built on a system that uses an IoT (Internet of Things) based solar irradiance measurement device, and satellite data issuing from meteorological satellites.

The observations made by the autonomous weather station are consolidated with the irradiance data computed from the relevant satellite’s image. This permits to overcome the traditional issues of data collection with classical ground sensors, that lead to imperfect or incomplete datasets:

  • Sensor failures and measurement drift over time
  • “Measurement error” (typically shadowing), caused by the sensor’s environment
  • Communication failures
