bifacial, floating, BIPV
SERENDI-PV will deal with specific issues of new PV systems by developing a set of dedicated solutions.
For bifacial PV plants, the project will develop specific data analytics algorithms to address albedo and rear soiling diagnosis in order to detect soiling, that requires cleaning maintenance such as cleaning the ground or the rear face of modules. Also, the project will address the detection of the snow appearance and the long trend degradation processes (aging).
Similarly, floating PV plants will be dealt with questions about module temperature as well as module movements due to waves. In addition, a specific lab testing protocol will be developed for the evaluation of the ageing and degradation behaviour of PV modules in a floating environment.
Concerning PV in the building environment (BIPV), SERENDI-PV will develop a model using Building Information Model (BIM) as well as data analytics for defect identification considering the particularities of this type of PV installations.
