    Instruments and analyzers for outdoor material testing

    Weathering of materials is most often an irreversible process affecting the cosmetic properties or strength of materials. This aging process is mainly driven by UV radiation, Heat and reactive elements in the atmosphere, for example chemical contamination. The plastic fabric of the product can dry and therefore weakened. The solar load can overheat the products and change material properties irreversibly. A common method to test the deterioration of materials is to expose materials to sun light and...

    Instruments and analyzers for DNI measurements at CPV sites

    Concentrating Photovoltaics (CPV) is driven by only direct solar radiation. To quantify the energy efficiency of a CPV system the total DNI and direct spectral solar irradiance, called spectral DNI, can be measured. Solar sensors are crucial during the phase of development and operation. Even at high sunny places, the composition and variability of the atmosphere strongly affects the solar spectral distribution and will impact on the energy yield and the decision on which cell type to use. The...

    Instruments and analyzers for DHI measurements

    Diffuse irradiance measurements: Diffuse Horizontal Irradiance measurements are performed with a thermopile sensor called Pyranometer mounted on a Sun tracker or shading ring.  When the pyranometer is installed on an automatic sun tracker, the diffuse radiation can be measured in two different ways. Measuring Diffuse irradiance requires an accurate pyranometer with low offset properties. Duirng clear sky conditions the DHI irradiance (W/m2) is less than 20% of the total irradiance. Zero offsets lead to...

    Instruments and analyzers for accurate solar radiation measurements

    Conducting reliable and accurate solar radiation measurements requires some knowledge and attention: think of environmental influences (wind, rain/snow, soling), re-calibration (bi-annually), not to mention data processing, spectral effects, etc. Essentially, accurate broadband solar radiation measurements are obtained using two components: a suitable set of pyranometers, including an optional pyrheliometer (DNI sensor) with sun tracker, and an adequate data logger.

    Instruments and analyzers for solar radiation energy budgets studies

    The Meteorological research community is very ambitious to understand climate changes and global impact on life. With modern advanced measurement equipment, e.g. satellites, remote sensing technologies and sophisticated computer models, multiple meteorological parameters can be analyzed at a large scale at the same time. As the climate system is very complex it is difficult to give accurate predictions of our future climate. We work with climate models, which are based on the consequences of impacts thus far...

    Instruments and analyzers for solar radiation measurements in PV applications

    Solar radiation is not only the driving force behind the Earth’s weather phenomena, it also drives photovoltaic energy production. One day of solar energy received by the Earth exceeds the amount of worldwide energy consumption per year. Exploring this merely inexhaustible source of energy - either by direct transformation of radiant energy into electricity or by indirect energy production via wind, waves, etc. - seems to be the obvious way to go. In this context solar radiation measurements are of...

    Instruments and analyzers for PV site solar monitoring

    PV performance measurements under real outdoor conditions are done in may different ways. However, the concept of all performance investigations is to relate the input energy, which is the solar radiative flux, to the output energy, which is the electrical power produced by the PV module. EKO’s Solar Monitoring Stations, referred to as SMS, is the dedicated facility for this type of evaluation.

  • Environmental monitoring solution for mining industry

    Control of fugitive dust in the mining industry and in particular open cut operations is of great concern to the local community, environmental protection authorities and of course the mine operators. Dust emissions can cause both nuisance effects as well as health effects and so mines typically employ multiple dust suppression activities to minimise their environmental impact. Many of these activities can be expensive to operate and depending on environmental conditions, at the time, may not actually be effective...
