Solar Service Repair

SERVICE AND REPAIR 

Solar Energy System

After investing in solar panels it is very necessary to protect that funding with ordinary restore and maintenance, high energy production and machine lifespan rely on everyday preventive protection and service by means of educated technicians. Solarify will ensure that your machine is working at its height degree for years of reliable strength technology.

It’s crucial to be sure that your system is performing at its absolute best. One of the biggest enemies of peak solar performance is the shade that covers your panels. No matter how durable or efficient your panels are, if they’re blocked by shade, they won’t work as well. As studies have shown, the shade can drastically drop the amount of energy you receive from your system. Solarify helps to inspect your system for any possible obstructions, shadows, or material that could block your system from working. We will conduct tests in order to calculate how the surrounding area and shade affects your system and will assess your options for getting rid of any problems.

Wire and Nut Replacement

Proper maintenance and service are required to prevent the solar energy system from failure. The most common point of failure in all Solar energy system is the wire splice connections, also known as wire nuts. To connect multiple wires some uninformed solar panel installers use improper wire nuts or techniques when installing solar panel systems. Some wire nuts are not intended to withstand moisture, and should never be used outdoors. When used in an outdoor electrical system like solar panels, they can corrode and damage your system. Most wire nuts are also not built to withstand high heat, which often occurs in the sunny areas that solar panel systems are installed. They can melt, causing a short in between the wires that they connect. Solarify evaluates your system, and replace all existing issues that lower down the efficiency of the solar system.

Monitoring Your System

It’s important to monitor how much energy your system is producing. This way, you can notice if your Solar energy system isn’t producing as much as expected and then catch issues or errors as soon as they happen. Monitoring also enables you to notice when your system is at its best—likely during especially sunny, clear, warm days. It’s always a great feeling to check on your solar system and see it producing all that energy for your home! As part of our system inspection and tune-up, Semper Solaris will also transfer your monitoring services to Semper Solaris servers, if you have monitoring on your system. This way, you will be able to check on your system at any time and watch how much energy is coming in, and you’ll also be on a reliable, consistent, state-of-the-art monitoring server. Semper Solaris will inspect your monitoring equipment and ensure that everything it reports is accurate.

PARAMETER FAILURE  - IMPROPER PRACTICE

 

1.Site Selection

 

Orientation    

- north / west  facing installations

Inclination 

- different azimuths or inclinations in the same string  

- array not tilted at an angle of latitude (for throughout the year best performance)

Shading

-place the system in the area surrounded by trees and/or buildings 

- seasonal shading is not taken into account

 Corrosion   

- modules are located in areas exposed to salt water

2.Design and planning of the system

 

 Structural load  

- age and condition of the roof  is not considered

- not use of specified hardware leading to  stability  problems  

- no respect to the building codes

Wind load  

- inadequate mounting

- the system not mounted on concrete bases

Location     

- no respect to the building and safety codes (eg overload the roof, no access for fire departments)

- BOS is not sited in weather resistant or rain‐tight enclosures

Equipment

- inappropriate inverter, undersized  cables, power optimizer and switch devices as well as combiner boxes and transformers

Lightning/grounding  

 - no lightning protection, earthing and surge protection

 - PV system installed in an exposed location

  - allow copper (equipment grounding conductor)  to come in contact with the aluminum rails and module frames

Electrical  connections 

- improper polarity

- incorrect circuit protection

- mismatch: e.g. inverter mismatch or generation meter not well fitted to the inverter output

- lengths of electrical wiring  are not minimized

- electrical codes for grid connection not taken into account

3.Physical Installations and Components

 

Shading - distances between the module rows are not kept

Roof Damage - perforation without adequate sealing methods

Corrosion - materials used outdoors are not sunlight/UV resistant

Array Modules and Configurations

-modules are subjected to excessive forces due to thermal expansion of the support structure

- put too few modules in series for proper operation of the inverter during high summer array temperatures

- insufficient module ventilation - modules of different configurations and different nominal power ratings are used in the same PV array Inverter

- placed  in a position where it is directly exposed to the sunlight

- insufficient ventilation - placed  in a long distance from the PV array combiner/junction box

- installed on or near a combustible surface

Wiring

- tight or loose cables

- improper cable support with exposure to physical damage

- multiple cables entering a single conductor cable gland

Conductors  

- not supported within 30cm of boxes or fittings

- bending conductors too close to connectors

Batteries

- not installed in an enclosure separated from controls or other PV system components

 - installed close to radioactive and flammable materials

 - exposed to direct sunlight

 - exposed to high temperature

 Labeling and warning signs - not present or incorrect placed

Sensors

- badly placed Boxes or conduit bodies

- cover them making nearly inaccessible for service                                                                

4.Safety

 

Technician’s safety

- fall protection equipment is not used even though it is needed

- noncompliance with accident prevention regulations

- work in adverse conditions: wet conditions, strong winds of frosted roof surfaces

- the installer walks on the panels

- the inverter is installed after wiring

 For the event of a fire Organizational measures

- not labeling the PV system at the building’s connection box and main distributor with an indicator sign  

 - lack of  general plans for emergency workers

 Structural measures

- no fire‐resistant routing of DC power

- no routing of DC power cables outside of the building or  

- the inverter is installed inside the building Technical measures

 - lack of DC disconnect switch in the area of the building’s main fuse box

Maintenance/Inspection

Technician

 - not annually  maintenance of mechanical and electrical connections (circuit currents and voltages, battery electrolyte etc)

 - the front surface of the PV modules not covered during maintenance

- bent, corroded, or otherwise damaged mounting component are not replaced

- loose components or fasteners are not re‐secured or tightened

- fire extinguishers are not located in close proximity to the battery

 - the owner is not informed /taught to frequently monitor the system’s performance

 Owner   (PV installer shall advise the owners for several maintenance measures to be followed)

- kWh produced is not periodically recorded (deviation from expected values may reason for checking the system)

 - panels are not adequately washed when needed

- panels are scratched during the cleaning procedure (brushes and harsh detergents are used)

- trees near the system are not adequately trimmed

- batteries’ surfaces are not kept clean

 - the electrolyte level in the batteries is not checked
