80.96kWp Grid Connected Solar Power Plant at MESCE Campus


Date : 01-01-2015

The 80.96kWp Solar Power Plant has been installed at MES College of Engineering, Kuttippuram on 14th December 2013 under Electrical Consultancy Cell, under the expertise of Dr. K.M. Moideen Kutty, Professor and Head, EEE Department and Mr. Ismail E.K., Assistant Professor of EEE. The solar photovoltaic modules for its capacity are mounted on the roof top of both Electrical & Electronics and Computer Science Department Blocks. It consists of 80.96kWp Solar Photovoltaic Modules of Radiant make and SMA make Grid Connected Inverter with built in Maximum Power Point Tracker. The plant is designed for 340 Units per day or average annual energy generation of 1,24,082 kWh/annum. According to the approximate calculation of payback period, it may return on investment within 8 years.This system can also feed the power back to the Grid when the internal requirement is less than the generated power. Now, we have provided the advanced system of Net metering for Import and export measurement for co-generation and boundary metering.
