Soiling significantly affects the energy production of PV power plants. Effects of soiling on PV modules should be assessed site-specific due to variations in soil type, location and weather patterns. Implementing an Ammonit soiling measurement kit helps you to:
Soiling is the accumulation of dust, dirt and other contaminants on the surfaces of PV modules. The amount of dust is extremely dependent on the location of the PV power plant, e.g., desert valley with sand storms. In absence of significant rain events or regular cleaning, production losses due to soiling effects increase. Measuring soiling effects provides important details about the PV power plant production, e.g., how much dust can be on the modules before any problem occurs and how does the dust affect transparency and efficiency of the modules.
