Solar EPC

Solar Power Plant – Engineering to Commissioning

Aelius Turbina is one of the fastest-growing turnkey EPC solution providers in the Indian renewable energy industry. With technical expertise and in-depth industry know-how, we can develop the most cost-effective renewable energy solution of any scale.

Electric Bill Study

One of the biggest reasons to go solar is that you can eliminate or significantly reduce your electric bill. 

Your savings with solar depend on a few different factors, like how much energy you currently consume, what is your future energy requirement, what is your sanction load, and at what rate you are currently consuming power.

Based on the above analysis we can determine your solar capacity requirement and its savings. 

WHAT IS SITE SURVEY? WHY IT IS USEFUL?

Have you ever wondered what makes a solar plant installation successful? One of the key areas that Solar buyers and vendors take for granted is the Site survey. This is an important process during Solar Installation. It provides crucial information when designing the Solar plant.

3 important factors considered during a Site Survey are:

  • Feasibility – Is the Solar system implementation feasible?
  • Viability – Does the Solar installation provide financial benefits in the long run?
  • User requirements – Are user requirements properly understood?
    A site survey helps understand the above 3 aspects in detail.Analyzing these 3 factors helps in the proper design and implementation of the Solar PV system.

3D SHADOW ANALYSIS

To get the optimum output from the Solar PV system the solar panels need to be nearly shade free. 3D Shading Analysis is done to ensure the solar panels are nearly shade free.

Different ways to do 3D Shading Analysis:

  • 3D Solar shading tools.
  • Physically study the movement of sunlight. i.e studying the way the sunlight moves over time in a day
  • Analyze the neighborhood to ensure there are no obstructions that creates shade.
    Other ways to ensure shade free solar irradiation:
  • Trackers are used to track the sun’s path to actively capture light more sunlight.
  • Shifting to an alternative location
  • Using Microinverters -They are attached to individual solar modules to optimize electrical output.

DESIGNING SOLAR POWER PLANT

The layout plan is prepared and 2D & 3D images are created which makes installation accurate and efficient. It ensures that everything is documented in writing, helps to identify compatibility issues, and assures a more professional installation. As we take on projects of growing complexity, using a layout plan ensures that personnel is always working with the same core framework.

Engineering

Engineering in the solar industry requires the involvement of various types of engineers including civil, chemical, computer software, electrical, mechanical, and industrial in various facets of this industry.

Our best-in-class engineering team can advise on component selection and help avoid inefficient plant layout and design while keeping in mind both capital costs and the long-term O & M costs. This saves money and optimizes production.

Procurement

Solar procurement has an increasingly critical role to play in terms of increasing supply chain resiliency, accessing supplier innovation, and delivering enterprise-wide cost reductions. Leveraging long-standing partnerships and material allocation agreements with many of the PV sector’s most important material suppliers, our solar procurement team is focused on creating differentiated value to our client.

Installation

The actual installation is an exciting day for every solar owner. Your solar installer will start by prepping your roof and making sure the structures are properly attached. Then, we put in electrical wiring that will connect to your electrical panel and general power system. After the electrical wiring is complete, we will install racking to support your panels. Once the racking is level and safely attached, the panels are placed onto the racking. Finally, your inverter(s) are connected to the panels to convert direct current (DC) energy into the alternating current (AC) energy used in your premises and on the electric grid.

The timeline for the installation will completely depend on the size of the system you are installing. One additional factor that can add time to your installation process is putting in a power meter for net metering.

Our Installation Methodology from Non-Penetrative to Elevated, Self-weight to Ballast.

Commissioning & Metering

The final step of going solar is “flipping the switch,” so to speak, and officially commencing to generate power from your rooftop. Before you can connect your solar panels to the electric grid, a representative from the local discom will need to inspect the system and give approval. During this inspection, the representative will essentially be double-checking installation work. He or she will verify that the electrical wiring was done correctly, the mounting was safely and sturdily attached, and the overall install meets standard electrical and roof setback codes.

Following this local inspection, you will be ready for official grid interconnection and commissioning of the plant. You can expect to wait two weeks to a month for the approval to occur and interconnection to go live.
