Performance Evaluation of 190 kWp Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic Plant in CMPDI, Ranchi.
Keywords:Rooftop solar photovoltaic plant, Performance Ratio, Capacity Utilization Factor, PVsyst Software, Weather Monitoring System
In this paper, the performance evaluation of 190 kWp rooftop solar photovoltaic plant has been
done. The plant locates at Central Mine Planning and Designs Institute (CMPDI), Ranchi in the state of
Jharkhand, India. The rooftop solar plant with smart meters is installed on five different buildings of the
institute. The data is considered from March, 2015 to Feb ruary, 2016. The analysis is based onreal time
data which are collected from smart meters and simulation using PVsyst software. Both results are
compared and discussed to analyse the performance of the system. These results also reflect the
performance of such plants under real operating condition in India.
