WHAT IS PHOTOVOLTAICS 4.0 & WHAT MAKE CLEVER UNIQUE

The Problem

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO?

Today, maintenance of a PV plant is mainly done manually or thru indirect monitoring, like drones, which is inefficient and potentially dangerous exposing operator to different hazards like high voltages or really high temperatures, or difficult to manage due to geographical complexity.

HOW WE DO WHAT WE DO?

Clever Dx is composed by two elements:

Our WW patented hardware is plug-and-play and
easy to retrofit and fully compatible with any type
of PV module technology without need of civil
works.

Our propietary software is a multiplatform that allows users remotely and in real-time to monitor and diagnose each PV module in the plant.

A complete solution to know what is happening to each panel in the plant.

1 panel - 1 device = 100%
of the plant diagnosed in
real-time

We are the only ones that traces the complete IV curves of each panel in the installation in real-time

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO?

KNOWING exactly which panels in the installation are defective makes all the difference in the World.

HOW THE DEVICE IS CONNECTED?

A mesh or meshed network is a network made up of a WIFI connection point and the devices that connect through it.
All devices communicate with each other working as signal repeaters, to form a single WIFI network of indefinite size and shape through which all the information flows.

WE ARE UNIQUE

We take the best of all O&M worlds and created something unique combining their benefits.

We are Diagnostics at module level: Production Iproduction Vproduction & IV Curve temperature.

Our solution works independently of the topology of your installation.

Clever Dx

What is it

Diagnostic device to characterize behavior of PV module.

Is an IV tracer and extract production information (V, I). Enable remote diagnostic, on real time and without production interruptions at PV module level.

What is not

Transform DC to DC like the MPPTs.

Transform DC to AC like inverters.

Provides indirect information base on production

Iproduction
Vproduction

What is it

One Instant voltage and current value which correspond with 1 working situation on one specific moment

What is not

Measurements to direct characterize PV module behavior

IV Curve

What is it

It is one of the most common methods of determining how a PV module functions.

What is not

Procedure to transform energy

Power Maximizer (MPPT @ PV module)

What is it

Adapt PV module to a maximum point working conditions (V,I) and provides this unique working point. Transform DC to DC.

What is not

Characterize behavior of PV module. IV curve tracer. Transform DC to AC.

Power Maximizer (MPPT @ inverter)

What is it

Adapt PV string to a maximum point working conditions (V,I).

What is not

MPPT @ PV module level. The maximum of the string IS NOT the maximum of each PV module.

Inverter

What is it

Transform DC to AC and provides unique working point (V,I).

What is not

Characterize behavior of each PV module connected. IV curve tracer.
