Kintech Engineering was contracted to supply 5 complete solar measurement stations including sensors for measuring plane-of-array (POA) irradiance for the Guaiembe project in Brazil.
Each solar met station consists of a 3 meter lattice mast equipped with booms to fit four secondary standard pyranometers, one wind vane and one anemometer as well as rain gauge and temperature and humidity sensors.
Separately, two calibrated solar cells and 10 surface mounted temperature sensors were installed on the nearest photovoltaic panel.
All the sensors were connected to the EOL Zenith data logger for data storage with the customer having direct access via the solar farm SCADA system and 24 hour remote access via GSM.
