Which Other Components Installed As Part Of Rooftop Solar Systems At Factories?

October 24, 2018

After solar panels, solar inverters are the essential component, which requires appropriate selection and installing for rooftop solar systems. However, to fix this system at factories and industries, many components make the solar system, apart from solar panels. Enterprises based in India’s capital territory – Dehli and NCR have opted for strong brand names for the inverters. Renowned large cities like Faridabad, Kundali, Panipat, Sonipat, Ghaziabad, Manesar, Noida, Neemrana and more preferred inverters of ABB, Huawei, SMA, Delta, Waaree and other well-known brands.

By paying little extra over the accessible warranty of 5 years on the purchased inverters, extends your warranty of another five years. In generating immense power from the equivalent level of solar generation, quality of Inverters matters significantly provided by the solar panels. To enhance the reliability of the solar system, the number of MPPTs (Maximum Power Point Tracker) generally help and offer a better production.

Talking about mounting the solar panels its structure plays an integral role in the system, having a strength of bearing the wind speed of 180 km/hr. Typically, to check the suitability of given height and weight, the structure should be designed and tested on the design software. For instance, the rise of wind pressure sees only when the height of the structure increases. According to recent news, many rooftop solar panels in Alwar – a city in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan flew away due to the poor quality of the structure. Hence, when selecting the structure, consumers should be vigilant, as flying panels will not only damage the system but also cause grave collisions.

Types of components used to install Rooftop solar system

AC cables – to connect the inverters to the AC junction boxes or the LT Panel of Discom, the appropriate size of the wires is much required. Sizing of the cable is essential to overcome the losses.

DC cables – this cables used for interconnecting the solar panels. Practices are noticed wherein the vendors tend to connect the boards by the AC cables which increase the generation losses. AC cables are cheaper and can help to reduce the capital cost in the short term but will be expensive due to mounting losses. Ideally, the DC cables should only be utilized to connect the solar panels to the Inverters.

Lightning Arrestors (LA) – this is required to safeguard the system against any weather lightning and should be installed based on the system size.

Earthing Strip – this system is essential for safe operations. Earthing strip and wires need to get connected to all the vital electrical components.

Remote Monitoring – this component of the generation should be provided to check the health of the system continuously.

Water Piping System – the component should ideally be designed to provide the water supply for the periodic cleaning of the panels that help to improve the generation.
