Solar Energy Supply Chain Management

Solar energy is increasingly used as an environmentally friendly and sustainable energy source. A supply chain management is required to produce PV panels.
Solar energy supply chain management includes sourcing the materials and components used to produce solar panels, planning production, monitoring the manufacturing process and distributing the end product. Proper management of these processes helps both to reduce production costs and to deliver quality products to customers.

Solar energy supply chain management involves many different components. These include the procurement of silicon, glass, metal frames and other components for solar panels, logistics and transportation management, production planning and tracking, management of production equipment and personnel, and storage distribution of the final product.
One of the most important factors for solar supply chain management is the quality of materials and components. Supply chain managers (EPC firms) must conduct rigorous inspections to ensure that materials are properly tested and comply with manufacturers’ quality standards. The logistics and transportation management process is also important because timely delivery of materials and components ensures that the production process continues without disruption.
Solar supply chain management is also about sustainability. It must ensure that materials and components are environmentally friendly. It is also important that the production process is environmentally friendly and recycling is ensured.

Exploring the Solar Power Plant Site: Importance and What to do

The installation process of solar power plants starts with a reconnaissance before the offer is presented to the prospective customer. Although more detailed explorations are carried out in the later stages of the solar power plant project, the data obtained in the first exploration determines the fate of the solar energy installation project. For this reason, the reconnaissance organized at the bidding stage for the solar power plant project is extremely important and a detailed inspection is required to determine whether the structure or land is suitable for installing a solar power plant.

By conducting a rooftop survey, it is possible to understand the suitability and potential of a solar power system on your roof. Exploration is extremely important in terms of making the settlement-bidding, project design and installation stages more accurate and applicable. Reconnaissance will help determine the most suitable area for solar power plant installation, make a correct design and keep costs under control.
The following information is taken into consideration during the inspection of the solar power plant to be installed in the exploration phase:

In order to increase the efficiency and functionality that can be achieved, various factors are examined during the exploration phase of the solar power plant. Among these, plant dimensions (width, length and height), detailed examination, construction and material selection to be used have an important place.

Electrical Examination Stage of the Solar Power Plant to be Installed in the Discovery

There are factors to be considered during the electrical inspection phase of the solar power plant to be installed. Factors such as transformer type, transformer power, main switch value, copper bus cross-section and cross-section of the solar power plant panel and inverters between the company panel. Factors are important for solar energy system design.

For example, if the transformer is insufficient, it should be learned whether the investor is considering upgrading the transformer and should be added to the exploration report. The cross-section of the copper busbar to be connected in the panel for the determination of the cable to be used and the most optimum system design should also be examined and added to the report.

The proper addition of the elements to the exploration report allows for an accurate design and planning during the electrical examination phase of the solar power plant to be installed.
