  1. PV String Monitoring Solution Electronic Cards for use in PV Combiner Box Applications

  2. Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution • The goals of PV String Monitoring • For the investor: to measure energy produced and forecasted revenues • For the operator: to detect defects for maintenance  But most existing systems have huge limitations • Precision is not good enough at inverter level • Monitoring systems are proprietary • Data interpretation is not easy  Need for high quality universal monitoring systems

  3. Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution • The advantages of string level monitoring • Detection of problems as soon as they appear • Precise localization of problems in the PV installation Pro-active maintenance Optimized PV installation performance Secured ROI, predictive revenues and reduced OPEX

  4. Energy produced over time T Performance Ratio = Energy expected over time T Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution • Performance Ratio Monitoring of instantaneouselectrical parameters Monitoring of operating conditions: T°, sun,…

  5. Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution • A precise control of the installation from the PV field to the inverter String Monitoring in the combiner box Communication Gateway (GPRS, Ethernet, …) Monitoring Software Monitoring Software

  6. Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution • Product Offering • Flexible, High Performance Solution • Three Electronic Cards • MAIN Card • AUX Card • PROBE Card

  7. Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution • Monitor 6 to 30 strings by connecting up to (4) AUX Cards to the MAIN Card • Monitor up to 8 external inputs (7 analog + 1 digital) by connecting the PROBE Card

  8. Diagnostic & control: • 4 digital inputs • 3 external relay control Communication: MODBUS on isolated RS485 (1.2km cable) • Aux Card extension: • up to 4 Aux. cards in parallel • 6 strings monitored per card • 6, 12, 18, 24 or 30 strings can be monitored by one single box • 32bits microcontrollers • Modbus Communication • Measurement & data processing • 16Mbit memory (6 months data storage worse case) • Probe Card extension: • 1 digital sensor • 7 analog sensors: • 4-20mA, ±1% precision • 1-10V, ±1% precision • 6 PV string inputs • Max voltage: ± 1000 Vdc • Max current: ± 25 A • Precision: ± 0.5% • Autonomous power supply from PV strings • 250Vdc to 1000Vdc string voltage • Low power consumption: 4W @1000Vdc • Reliable operating range • -40°C to +70°C operating temperature • onboard temperature sensors (-40°C to +100°C ±2°C) • Integrated Bus Bar • 150A combined output (two output terminals, 75A each)

  9. Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution • Features and Benefits • Built-in Power Supply – Take power directly from the PV string. Eliminates the need to purchase and install a separate power supply to power the monitoring device • Accuracy – 0.5% precision • Voltage and Current Measurement – Additional voltage measurement provides a greater level of detail and is required by some integrators

  10. Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution • Features and Benefits • Flexible 6-String Device – Allows for greater flexibility (can be configured for 6, 12, 18, 24 or 30 string boxes) • Integrated Bus Bar – Combines strings into 1 or 2 outputs based on ampere rating. Eliminates the need for separate comb bus bar • Increased Functionality – Option to connect up to 8 external sensors (anemometer, thermometer, sun sensor, etc…)
