Product Description

What is Soiling loss? This term refers to the power lost due to snow, dirt, dust and other particles that cover the PV module surface.

The short-circuit current, an essential characteristic of the PV panels, is proportional to the PV panels effective radiation. By comparing the short circuit current of a “clean“ PV panel to the “soiled“ PV panel, and compensating for PV panel temperature we can estimate the exact effect of soiling.

  • Dedicated Soiling Rate Python Script
  • Full Compatibility with EOL Zenith Logger
  • Precision Temperature & SC Current Sensors

The Soiling Measurement Kit supplied by Kintech Engineering allow users to estimate the site-specific effects of soiling on PV modules.
