Starting at Intersolar 2019, a new technology will make the invisible visible: degradations, soilings and shadings of each individual module will be displayed with SunSniffer.
Previous PV monitoring portals are practical and show, among other things, how much power a system produces. But if one or more modules produce less, you see only little except a reduced total output. Finding the reason for the power reduction and its exact location is difficult.
SunSniffer now has implemented a Digital Twin technology in the PV sector originally developed by NASA. Artificial intelligence evaluates the measurement data from high-precision, small sensors in each module. Through this combination of module- specific measurement data and their evaluation with artificial intelligence, it is possible to show exactly where which losses exist and why.
