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.

Power Optimizers

What are Power Optimizers for Solar Inverters?

Power optimizers are additional devices used in Solar Power generation to convert DC to DC (that’s right, not a typo, DC to DC). Power optimizers tune the performance of individual panels in the Solar power plant. 

Optimizers are required because the photoelectric effect does not produce the same energy in all the panels equally. Factors like the shading of panels due to clouds and dust can result in non-uniform distribution of power.

What are the types of Power Optimizers for Solar Inverters?

Module-level Power Optimizer: Power optimizers at each module level optimize the energy distribution to negate the effect of peculiar conditions.

Sometimes the panels don’t operate at the optimal power efficiency. In that case, the module measures the maximum power point tracking. MPPT helps to optimize the DC characteristics to get the maximum possible power output.

In Solar Power plants, the panels get connected in series. Therefore the reduced output from a few panels can lead to the reduced power output power of the whole system. 

Sometimes up to 50% of power is lost. Power optimizers become critical for not only optimizing the output DC power. But also save the system from power loss of up to half of the capacity.

How do the Power Optimizers for Solar Plant work?

Large Solar plants face an efficiency dip in power production and delivery of the power to the load. Solar Inverters convert DC to AC for the consumers. 

The DC input to the inverters is not consistent without an optimizer. Power optimizers use maximum power point tracking to make the DC power output from panels optimal.

This optimal DC power is fed to the Solar Inverters to get the efficient flow of current at optimal levels. Smaller DC voltage is hard to convert into AC voltage. Power Optimizers are necessary, especially for big Solar power plants.

What are some top brands of Power Optimizers for Solar Inverters?
