Verify the real performance and availability levels of your PV power plant
Following the construction of a photovoltaic (PV) power plant, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors must ensure that the installation meets performance and availability levels stipulated in the contract. Owners and operators need accurate and trustworthy information about the plant's performance to set cash flow models and maximise performance/financial yield. This information ensures the plant meets or exceeds its potential and that the maintenance company they work with delivers on quality commitments.
Stakeholders must also avoid the possibility of inaccurate data from meteorological sensors due to incorrect placement, inclined position, lack of calibration, high uncertainty or inappropriate sampling interval. This is important because inaccurate data can make a PV power plant appear to have a good performance ratio even when it operates poorly.
TÜV SÜD’s experts carry out direct and independent calculations to analyse the production of PV power plants. We also help to assess the meteorological data and geographical conditions of your PV power plant location.
