During the lifecycle of a photovoltaic (PV) power plant, owners and developers demand real-time performance and availability levels of PV power plant. There is a requisite need for accurate information about the plant performance assessment in terms of high performance ratio (PR) and component level reliability.

And in case any underperformance issues are identified, it becomes essential to seek help of engineering consultants who can assist in resolving the performance issues.

Assessing plant past and potential performance

SgurrEnergy provides independent plant performance assessment services for operational solar PV plants. We have assessed over 17GW of global solar PV plants, which makes us one of the most experienced solar focused consultants in the world.



Our Proficiency -Your Benefits

Advisory Services Benefit
  • Improve performance over time, incorporate performance data, and analyze trends.
  • Increase plant productivity, reliability and availability.
  • Identify key areas of improvement in operational and maintenance practices.
  • Lower overall life-cycle costs.

Our services include:

Our engineers provide a detailed look into the plant SCADA system and assess the quality and integration of SCADA system with all plant equipment including the weather station. All data recorded and displayed is checked for completeness. We also assess the quality of reports generated from the plant SCADA.

If it is determined a PV plant is under-performing, our engineers work with plant owners and operators to conduct component level root cause analysis and recommend appropriate fixes.

Plant Performance Assessment

We undertake these tasks:

  • Review of condition of solar asset.
  • Performance measurements on key components.
  • I-V curve tracing and Peak Power Measurement.
  • Infrared camera inspection.
  • Energy Loss analysis.
  • Auxiliary consumption analysis.
  • Analysis of plant and grid availability.
  • SCADA Plant performance assessment with analysis of:
  • Irradiation measurements and uncertainties.
  • Plant availability and grid downtime analysis.
  • Plant performance ratio (PR).
  • Review of Operational data.
