GoodWe Compatible Weather Station
SEVEN provides a full set of weather station for Solar Power Plants compatible with Goodwe Ezloggers. It includes different sensors required to monitor the Solar PV Plant using Goodwe monitoring system Promate. Nowadays, weather monitoring stations have been more widely used in photovoltaic power plants, making them particularly useful for monitoring the performance of solar stations.
The required sensors in your weather station
Weather Monitoring Station of GoodWe
In fact, the weather monitoring station does not only need a datalogger to be completed, it needs also several sensors that must be compatible with the datalogger used. For this reason, SEVEN Sensor Solutions produces a multitude of sensors that record and provide physical measurements and meteorological parameters related to climatic variations. The most requested sensors by customers are the following:
PV pyranometer, with a Modbus RTU output, which is an advanced, weatherproof junction box made of UV-resistant materials. This sensor is constructed from a monocrystalline solar cell connected to a high-precision shunt. The irradiance sensor contains up to five input ports, so that it can be connected to additional sensors, and an output port connected to the EZlogger via an RS485 cable. Note that it also contains an integrated Module temperature sensor.
Ambient temperature Sensor is very important to see how production is affected by temperature. This sensor is mounted inside a solar radiation shield which has four aspirated plates that allow air to pass freely. The shield has the ability to protect the ambient temperature sensor from radiation and other sources of radiant heat.
Module temperature sensor, is the most recommended sensor after the irradiance sensor as it provides the back of module temperature value which is used in the calculation of the Performance Ratio of the PV Plant.
Wind speed sensor, also known as an anemometer, is used to measure wind speed in solar power plants, and to provide the data to the GoodWe EZlogger.
Wind Direction Sensor with Potentiometer output signal, is used for monitoring the direction of the wind and providing the data obtained to the Datalogger.
GoodWe Monitoring Program
The monitoring system starts directly after the installation of the sensors on the solar panel. For this reason, SEVEN Sensor allows its engineers to perform a remote set-up by using the SEMS portal and ProMate.
The logistics department of SEVEN Sensor ensures a fast delivery to its customers worldwide. This means that customers receive their products on time at their front door.
Our engineers are, therefore, at your disposal to provide you with information on anything you might need concerning the weather monitoring station.
