It Came From Outer Space: Satellite Irradiance Data for Performance Benchmarking
DECK Monitoring Incorporates SolarAnywhere SystemCheck™ to Offer Dependable, Affordable Performance Baselines
DECK Monitoring announces a new product offering in their suite of PV monitoring solutions. The new product, SolarAnywhere® SystemCheck™, seamlessly integrates the powerful DECK software platform with site-specific satellite irradiance and predictive modeling data powered by Clean Power Research, pioneers in solar estimation technology.
SolarAnywhere SystemCheck combines satellite irradiance data with simulation models to provide the industry’s most detailed predicted power calculator. This calculator accounts for make and model of system hardware (such as panels and inverters) along with panel tilt, azimuth angle, and panel tracking motion. The end result is a highly accurate performance baseline that is automatically generated within the DECK Admin Panel web page, allowing users to easily chart actual generation against modeled performance.
You can easily compare irradiance to power. You can easily compare modeled generation to actual generation. There is no better way to benchmark your system performance.
SolarAnywhere irradiance data is calculated from NOAA GOES satellite imagery using an exclusive image processing method developed by Dr. Richard Perez at SUNY Albany. Data is currently provided with hourly granularity, and resolution up to one kilometer.
