Q.Could you elaborate on the role test and measuring instruments play in the overall function, analysis and maintenance of solar equipment’s/ project?
T&M plays very important and vital role in solar industry. As solar industry is completely a electrical power generation industry, so it is essential to keep on monitoring the output of the system. And also the for gaining high efficiency from the system proper maintenance is essential, where T&M comes into picture. Also as Solar equipments are placed on field in changing atmospheric conditions and weather, so timely monitoring of system ensure the desired output.
Q.How important is IV Curve test for a solar module or a system and the benefits and advantages of using a MECO solar system/ module analyzer for measuring IV Curve?
The electrical power produced by a solar module is a function of the current (I) and voltage (V). Measuring the relationship between current and voltage whilst varying the electrical load connected to the PV cell or module from open circuit to short circuit produces a characteristic current Vs. voltage (I-V) curve.
Real-time power monitoring systems only provide an actual power generated however, if the actual yield is less that the design figure, they provide no information, So I-V Curve tracing is required to identify the root cause of an under-performing PV system.
If I-V curve for the installed string shows a distinct change in the angle of slope or shifts in the shape of the curve, then these will indicate that something is wrong with one or more of the individual modules.
Q.Could you elaborate on the key features of solar power meter and its use?
Solar Power meter is essential to check the Irradiance value of sun at site to install solar plant, and also to decide the tilt angel of solar panel for fetching the maximum solar power. MECO Solar Power Meter 936, is designed and equipped with those features to provide accurate Irradiance power with orientation in W/m2& BTU /(ft2.h) and also the tilt angel, an complete kit for Solar Power measurement and Solar panel installation. MECO 936 provides features as Average, Min/Max values, as the irradiance value of sun always keeps on varying.
Q.What is your strategy in regards to offering best value to customer for the price, compared to similar offerings from competitors?
We know the Indian market and the also the mind-set of technicians, as we are in T&M industry since 1962.
We have firstly design and developed our product considering all of our experience of several years, and kept the function and operation of Analyzer very simple with very few buttons to avoid confusion, so any technician can also use it. In 9018BT we have provided on screen display in analyser, so that IV curve can be visual immediately to engineer and decision would be made accordingly, rather than caring laptops on fields.
We offer Solar System Analyser in very best price in Indian Market, with best sales and service support to our valued customers.
Q.Continued innovation is the key to success in this growing industry. How is the process of innovation managed at MECO?
For any innovation problem statement should be very clear and known. Problems or issues come on fields only, while using instruments. We maintain very friendly and interactive relation with our customer and even at lay man level, form were we get valued feedback for our instruments and accordingly we keep on innovation our instruments. We upgrade our products as per need of customers and even launch new products as per their requests.
Q.Your views on the current state of solar industry and going forward how to you see the solar industry contributing to the overall growth of MECO Instruments?
It is going to have remarkable growth trends. Credit goes to GoI and its initiatives. Speed of making Decisions, Policies and Overcoming the Hurdles in path of set target, is really appreciable. Especially the decision made for Rooftop Policy, Solar Parks, etc., will provide a boost to the sector. Considering long term growth, the sector will definitely Bloom. We expect more exponential growth from solar industry.
