Data Automation tool for Solar assets

As industries are shifting towards data-driven decisions, It becomes critical to have good quality data to ensure analysis is correct and actionable.

Data not only helps you understand how your solar plant is performing in general  but to compare and analyze how different sections of the plant are performing in comparison to each other using performance indicators like PR, SY, soiling, degradation, etc. For example, data can tell you precisely if a panel is degrading faster than the other panel installed at the same site due to a shadow from the nearby tree. Data can derive intelligence for multiple stakeholders: Sales, engineering, procurement, management and investors. Data intelligence can streamline and give a new way to any solar asset owner to function and manage their company. 

Generally, a MW size of plant produces 100,000 data points in a month. However, as reported by our customers in multiple geographies, 16-20% data points are usually missing in this data due to network or connection failure and/or faulty readings by the data loggers. Because of the huge quantity of data produced otherwise, missing data is usually ignored (an easy way out), thereby creating a void that leads to incorrect conclusions. 

For example, missing data during the sunshine hours can effectively lead to low PR value in days of high energy production, or measurements during night time hours can give a high CUF value which is misleading. 

Also, it is quite common to receive outliers/ bad quality measurements from data loggers, pyranometers due to soiling, bad weather conditions, calibration issues, etc. Generally, as a part of data cleaning, this data is removed from the dataset leading to data loss. 

SmartHelio’s Data Automation Tool aims to provide clean and sanitize data in a single click. 

Our Data Automation tool is designed to clean and sanitize in a way to first remove bad measurements from the dataset and clean the dataset. It later predicts the missing data points with 99% accuracy using Machine Learning algorithms and provides sanitized data. All you need to do is connect your plant via API or upload your data to the tool and click “Submit”. You can simply download sanitized data and use it for your internal analysis. 

 

To know more about our Data Automation tool you can book Ask Me Anything (AMA) session with us every Wednesday & Friday, 1300 CET/ 5.30 PM IST. During the 45 minutes session, you can ask us anything about our tool. So Hurry book you AMA session NOW!
