RFID Based Identification and Management of SOLAR PV Modules

As part of a national strategy to increase the amount of energy generated via solar power, the Indian government is mandating that all solar modules be tagged and tracked.

The government mandated that each solar-or photovoltaic (PV)-module placed into use must carry an RFID tag, so that it can be easily identified and tracked throughout its useful life. The objective is to link PV module manufacturers to solar power deployments-which, in some cases, will contain many hundreds of modules.

MNRE GUIDELINES
  • Each PV module used in any solar power project must use a RFID tag for identification.
  • The RFID tag used on each module can be inside or outside the laminate and withstand harsh environment conditions.
  • The RFID tag should last for 25 years.
  • Each RFID tag must be encoded with the name of the module manufacturer and the solar cells; the month, year and country of manufacture for the module and the cells; The module's technical characteristics, such as its wattage and expected performance statistics; and a serial number that uniquely identifies the module.


OVERVIEW OF THE SOLUTION
  • Our solution is suitable for both the Crystalline and Thin film solar PV modules.
  • The solution can be implemented in the manufacturing plant, we provide the H/W , S/W and the tags. It can also be integrated with the sun simulator.
  • The solution can be implemented at the site, which involves site survey, collection of data, encoding the data into the tags as per MNRE guidelines and fixing of the tags.


SYSTEM COMPONENTS
  • RFID TAGS
  • Desktop RFID Reader for Encoding the data into RFID Tags.
  • HHT for data verification in the field.


SOFTWARE
  • S/W for Personalization using desktop RFID reader
  • The front end is developed in dot net platform.
  • The back end is maintained in SQL.
  • All the data as MNRE guidelines is encoded into the RFID tags.
  • The data is stored in our backend application .
  • The reports are available for IV curve of Each module and the module information reports for each rack.


SOFTWARE FOR VERIFICATION USING HHT.
  • The application is developed in winCE / windows Mobile platform.
  • The backend is maintained in SQL.
  • The data verification is done using HHT and when the personalized tag is read , all the information stored in RFID tag as per MNRE guidelines will be shown in the HHT .
