India’s Solar Energy

Indian solar power or solar power in India is a rapidly growing industry and ranks among the world’s top three nations in solar energy production. The country’s solar installed capacity was 30.071 GW as of July 31, 2019.

India has the lowest capital cost per megawatt (MW) to install the solar power plants, which makes the country the cheapest producer of solar power. The Indian government has set the target of 100 GW capacity for 2022, and so far it has reached 30% of that target.

One of the tropical countries in the world, India receives solar radiation of almost 3,000 hours of sunshine throughout the year which is equivalent to more than 5,000 trillion kWh. The main reason why the country is an ideal place to generate electricity from solar energy. Some states in India that have a great potential for tapping solar energy due to their location include Orissa, Andhra, Bihar, Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, West Bengal and Punjab.

However, India as a rapidly growing economy with almost more than 1 billion population is also facing a large amount of energy demand. When it comes to electricity production and consumption, India stands on the fifth spot worldwide. As the production of electricity continues expanding over the years the population of the country is also expanding continuously, the reason why energy supply must be prioritized to increase the inability to match the country’s needs and demands. Until now there is still more than 72 percent of the population living in villages and half of the villages live in a home without a supply of electricity.

Almost 53 percent of the power being produced in the country is coming from coal however, it was predicted that the coal reserves of the country won’t last beyond the year 2040 to 2050. With this, India focused its interest more on renewable energy, energy efficiency and power conservation. To meet this rising demand, they think solar energy is the best form of energy to generate in order to fulfill the country’s energy needs and also served as the bridge of the demand-supply energy gap.

Solar power in India is considered as one of the fast-growing solar industry worldwide. In fact, India ranks among the world’s top three nations in terms of solar energy production. As of August 2019, the country managed to achieve a solar installed capacity of 30.709 GW.

Furthermore, India has the lowest capital cost per megawatt (MW) to install solar power plants all over the globe, the reason why the country is considered the cheapest producer of solar power. The Indian government already reached the 30 percent target of the planned 100 GW capacity target for 2022 which was achieved four years ahead of the scheduled. This 100 GW solar capacity includes 40 GW from rooftop solar along with this a 100 billion US dollar target investment. The rooftop solar power accounts for 2.1 GW wherein almost 70 percent of it is commercial or industrial solar power. As of now, India has established almost 42 solar parks for the promoters of solar plants.

India was able to expand its solar generation capacity by 8 times, from only 2,650 MW in May 2014 to over 20 GW as of January 2018. In the year 2015 to 2016, India managed to add a solar capacity of 3 GW,  another 5 GW from 2016 to 2017 while over 10 GW was added in its solar capacity by the year 2017 to 2018 with the average current price of its solar electricity dropping to 18 percent below the coal-fired’s average price.

Moreover, India is also developing an off-grid solar power for local energy needs aside from its large-scale grid-connected solar photovoltaic (PV) initiative. Solar products have significantly helped Indians to meet their rural needs and at the end of the year 2015, less than one million solar lanterns were sold in the country that reduced the need for kerosene. In the same year, there were 118,700 solar home lighting systems installed while the national program provided 46,655 solar street lighting installations. In addition to that, almost 1.4 million solar cookers were also distributed in India.

Ground Fault Protection Devices

What are Ground Fault Protection Devices and Detectors?

Ground Fault Protection Devices and Detectors help people to rectify the faults that arise from ground faults. Ground faults are nothing but the inability of the grounding system to pass the extra current to earth.

Earthing is a common practice for all types of electrical systems. Earthing or grounding connects a conductor to the earth and protects the system from damage due to high current or voltage.

In large Solar arrays, grounding faults cannot be manually detected to their large size. Therefore devices and detectors are used to get warnings or alarms whenever there is a discontinuity in the grounding conductor. Timely detection of faults can save costly equipment and protect people from accidents.

Where are Ground Fault Protection Devices and Detectors used?

Ground Fault Protection Devices and Detectors are used in electric systems like Solar Plants with Solar panels or arrays.

Advantages of Ground Fault Protection Devices and Detectors

  • Can be applied to single and multi controllers.
  • Protects active devices like batteries and transformers.
  • Used in place of fuses
  • Complete isolation of the Solar Arrays or panels happens upon fault detection.
  • Ground faults are easily traced
  • Minimal battery power is required
  • Compatibility with all kinds of PV arrays

How do Ground Fault Protection Devices and Detectors work?

Ground Fault Protection Detectors measure the voltage between the terminal and the ground potential. Based on the reading the fault is located. If the voltage is high in the grounded portion then the Ground Fault Protection Device acts as a circuit breaker to protect any hazard from happening.

What are some branded Ground Fault Protection Devices and Detectors?

GE is one of the biggest names in electrical instrumentation. GE makes grounding systems to protect the system from high current and voltage damages. Some other brands are

  • NK Technologies
  • Rockwell Automation
  • Honeywell
  • Steven Engineering
  • American Sun Components
  • North Coast Electric Co.
