With the exponential job growth in the renewable sector, especially the solar field, it is a time to develop & put new skills to practice. In this course, the audience will gain in-depth exposure about floating solar plant design both for KW scale MW scale solar plants starting from basics. System design, documentation, cost estimation & net energy yield estimation is fully explained by segregating long lectures into small sections.
For sustainable growth, power generation from renewable energy is considered as one of the best options throughout the world. Of the renewables energy sources, solar and wind are considered as feasible options to meet the major portion of the future power demand. Government of India (GoI) have undertaken an ambitious plan of installing 100 GW solar plants by year 2022. Installation of solar power of this magnitude will require huge tracts of land and this expected to pose additional challenges in locating and acquiring the same, to realise the set goal. Floating solar power plants can supplement in realising the GoI initiatives.
Conventional ground-mounted PV solar plants require large area, about 4-5 acre per MW. The requirement of such huge land could cause serious impediments to growth in solar power as land availability is becoming scarce day by day. Floating solar plant, on the other hand, does not require any land except to install power evacuation facility which is negligible.
The biggest advantage of installing floating solar plants within large industrial complex is that there is hardly any infrastructure facility to be developed for such plants. It also has other advantages viz., minimal land requirement, less O&M cost, flexibility in power evacuation, ease of cleaning panels, reduction in water loss due to evaporation etc.
