  11. 11. Construction delays  Design flaws. Poor design of components, such as the support structures, lead to costly and time-consuming remedial measures.  Poorly planned construction schedule. The illogical sequencing of construction tasks caused a number of delays:  Monsoon rains restricted access to the site as the access road had not been sealed. The access route should have been sealed well before the arrival of the monsoon.  Modules were damaged (and were at risk of theft) as they were stored unprotected on site for long periods of time. Modules and other valuable components should not be delivered to site until shortly before they are required. If they must be delivered earlier then they should be stored in a controlled and secure environment.AF-Mercados EMI 11 FirstGreen
  12. 12. Quality issues in construction  Foundations in incorrect locations.  Poor alignment of foundations.  Cracked and damaged foundations.  Elements of the supporting structure left unattached.  Poorly aligned solar modules.  Damaged solar modules.  Poor attention to detail in finishing of substation buildings.AF-Mercados EMI 12 FirstGreen
  13. 13. Commissioning of the project Commissioning should follow the procedure described in IEC 62445 and prove three main criteria:  The power plant is structurally and electrically safe.  The power plant is sufficiently robust (structurally and electrically) to operate for the specified lifetime of a project.  The power plant operates as designed and its performance is as expected.AF-Mercados EMI 13 FirstGreen
  14. 14. Commissioning Open Circuit Voltage Test This test checks whether all strings are properly connected (module and string polarity) and whether all modules are producing the voltage level as per the module data sheet. The test should be conducted for all strings. The open circuit voltage, Voc, should be recorded and compared with temperature adjusted theoretical values. Short Circuit Current test This test verifies whether all strings are properly connected and the modules are producing the expected current. The test should be conducted for all strings. The short circuit current, Isc, should be recorded and compared with the temperature adjusted theoretical values. AF-Mercados EMI 14 FirstGreen
  15. 15. Grid Connection  Grid connection should only be performed once all DC string testing has been completed. It is likely that the distribution or transmission system operator will wish to witness the connection of the grid and/or the protection relay.  Such a preference should be agreed in advance as part of the connection agreement.  The grid connection agreement often stipulates the level of parameters—such as electrical protection, disconnection and fault—to which the PV power plant is required to adhere. Usually, these conditions need to be met before commissioning the grid connection. AF-Mercados EMI 15 FirstGreen
  16. 16. Post Connection Acceptance TestingOnce the power plant is connected to the grid, the inverters will be powered up according to the manufacturer’s start-up sequence. Inverter internal meters and displays should be verified prior to use.Post grid connection should include: • DC current test. • Performance ratio test.AF-Mercados EMI 16 FirstGreen
  17. 17. Plant Availability testAF-Mercados EMI 17 FirstGreen
  18. 18. Operation and MaintenanceMaintenance can be broken down as follows: Scheduled or preventative maintenance – Planned in advance and aimed at preventing faults from occurring, as well as keeping the plant operating at its optimum level. Unscheduled maintenance – Carried out in response to failures.AF-Mercados EMI 18 FirstGreen
