Conference Record of the IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference | Year: 2011

ISFOC has completed the installation and acceptance of the first MW, so it is the moment for beginning with the operation and maintenance of the plants. In this paper, ISFOC will give the results of the demonstration plants. First of all we make the comparison between the production of CPV and PV systems in Puertollano. A performance study of the production is also presented to show if there is degradation after two years of operation. At the same time we have carried out the analysis of Operation and Maintenance issues, showing the possible solutions for some of the problems. Finally, a detailed study of the module condensation in the demonstration plant is also presented. © 2011 IEEE. Source

A photovoltaic (PV) hybrid system combines PV with other forms of electricity generation, usually a diesel generator. The system presented in this paper uses concentration photovoltaic (CPV) as the main generator in combination with a storage system and the grid, configured as the backup power supply. The load of the system consists of an air conditioning system of an office building. This paper presents the results obtained from the first months of operation of the CPV hybrid system installed at Instituto de Sistemas Fotovoltaicos de Concentraciõn facilities together with exhaustive simulations in order to model the system behaviour and be able to improve the self-consumption ratio. This system represents a first approach to the use of a CPV in office buildings complemented by an existing AC-coupled hybrid system. The contribution of this paper to the analysis of this new system and the existing tools available for its simulation, at least a part of it, can be considered as a starting point for the development of these kinds of systems.
