SOILING IMPACT ON
PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS

PERFORMANCE AND MONEY LOSSES

PERMANENT DAMABES ON PV MODULES

EXTRA O&M COSTS DUE TO CLEANING OPERATION

THE CLEANING PHOTOVOLTAIC ISSUE

The influence of soiling in a photovoltaic plant could cause remarkable energy losses according to the local climate and pollution conditions.

Soiling performance reduction depends on several variables:



  • Wind speed and direction
  • Kind of dust
  • Moisture
  • Natural cleaning occurrance


Soiling could cause also permanent damages to photovoltaic modules, like hot spots and cementation. Anyway cleaning operations have a relevant cost and are very important to optimize the process determining when and how often performing the cleaning activities.

HOW IT WORKS

PV Cleaning Optimizer helps Energy Producers, Asset Managers and O&M Operators in the selection of the optimum period and frequency for photovoltaic modules cleaning operations. The device measures the output electrical parameters from a daily cleaned photovoltaic module and a module exposed to soiling under conditions similar to the system to be monitored. The supplied web-based software, considering:



  • PV plant power and technical features
  • Estimated PV performance increase
  • Price of energy and incentives, if any
  • Water and cleaning operations costs


Detects the optimum cleaning period by considering the cost-benefit ratio related to the cleaning operations.
