NISE to Organise Solar Analytics Workshop for Enhancing Plant Efficiency

The MNRE-backed National Institute of Solar Energy (NISE) in association with Pragya Solar, a social startup, is organizing five-day training program on solar analytics.

Big Data NISE

The program is aimed at developing CoE (Centre of Excellence) on analytics for organization as well as developing skills for managing the same.

It encompass the combination of solar domain with the technology like Internet of Things (IOT), Machine Learning (ML), Artificial Intelligence (AI), predictive modelling, forecasting, optimization which has to be understood by utility and solar plant engineers and decision makers to carve differentiator for their utility operations in resolving day to day problems.

This is the 3rd program of NISE which will commence from February 24, 2020 and will end on February 28, 2020. The last date for submitting application is February 20, 2020.

However, its 4th program is tentative and expected to be organized next month between March 23 and March 27, 2020.

The objectives of the training program include:

  • How to gain intelligence on plant data and analyze the output with descriptive modelling to understand the current operation.
  • Understand the parameters which contribute to the variable generation and diagnostics analytics on assessing their impacts.
  • Explore the methods of statistical analysis to analyze the data quality from different sources and making it ready for exploratory and inferential analysis.
  • Understand the basics of plant sustainability with predictive modelling to assess solar plant output, solar cell efficiencies and degradation, inverter outputs and cables /joints impacts.
  • How to achieve the optimization at the plant level and parameters contributing to same.

Like other energy operations Solar too generate Big Data (radiations, plant parameters etc.) which need to be studied for effective operation as large utility power output impacts power evacuation and grid balancing perspective for state as well as central utility.

The target audience of the program is graduates, engineers, management consultants, consulting firms, solar entrepreneurs, public sector undertaking officials, solar developers & EPC contractors, senior energy department officials of Govt. of India, engineers from power Discoms (distribution companies) etc.

Further, the training fee for the program is Rs 25,000 plus GST at the rate of 18 percent; tea and lunch will be provided. Batch strength will be limited to 25 only.

However, the accommodation to the candidates will be provided at Rs 600 plus 18 percent GST. It doesn’t include in the course Fees, and no TA/DA will be provided to the participants.
