In order to improve the plant performance there could be multiple focus areas, right at the plant design stage to integration stage to achieve optimized plant performance. It is important for developers, EPC Contractors, O&M service providers to consider various options/ strategies to increase their plant yield at a minimal cost. Knowledge about the performance of solar power plants results in correct investment decisions and better regulatory framework, technical enhancement of solar photovoltaic technology. Emerging Technologies are being used to reduce different losses like DC cable layout losses, shadow losses, inverter losses, AC wiring losses and module miss-match losses. Use of AI and ML is being done in performance monitoring and enhancement.
