Renewable Energy Source

St.Martins’s Engineering College installed solar power plant in the year of 2018. The solar power plant has the generating capacity of 130KW. To generate that power we are using 414 solar panels, in which each possesses 315 WH capacity. By using these solar panels we are generating DC power, to invert this into AC we are using four Inverters of each bearing of 33KW capacity. The complete solar power station was erected in On Grid metering system. That means we are not using any type of battery storage system. The amount of energy which is generated by the solar panels is directly supplied towards load; the remaining energy can be taken from the grid. During the holidays and vacation time, the generated energy by the solar panels is directed towards the grid. The complete solar power plant is automatically operating system.
