Spectral radiation: 20 years time series

 

 

Provision of one, a few, or a large number of Typical Meteorological Years (pessimistic P90 or typical P50 scenario) generated from HelioClim-3 and MERRA-2 databases. PVsyst and SAM compatibility.

 

  Long term solar radiation, Ultraviolet radiation and meteorological time series over a geographic zone.       Spectral radiation values in the range defined by the user, in real time, in clear sky and in all weather conditions.  

 

   
Solar and meteorological anomalies along the time
     
           

 

To measure the weather deviations and the impact on the performance of your solar plants.

MERRA-2 data: 40 years of historical meteorological data

 


GFS Forecast: weather forecast service

 
    Temperature, relative humidity, pressure, wind speed and direction, rainfall, snowfall, snow depth and short-wave irradiation. Data available from January 1980 up to a month ago.       Temperature, relative humidity, pressure, wind speed and direction, rainfall, snowfall, snow depth and Global Horizontal Irradiation (GHI) Data available from 1 month ago to day+3.  

 

Atmosphere

   

Dust and soiling analysis

     
           

  Diagnostic report of the atmosphere turbidity : anticipation of dust events and fouling forecast of photovoltaic and CSP modules              

 

Maps

Average and real time maps

 

Solar Atlases

 

Solar Cadastres

 

 

We can deliver maps of the following components:

  • All Solar radiation components
  • Top of atmosphere solar radiation
  • Ultraviolet radiation and UV index
  • Meterological maps over the world
  • Atmosphere composition over the world: Aerosols Optical Depth, Water vapor, Ozone (O3)
 

 

An atlas is a set of digital maps available online used to exposed one or many types of data on a specific region.

We provide different type of atlases with the spatial and temporal coverage of your choice from February 2004 onwards.

We can deliver averages data but also yearly and monthly values.

 

 

A solar cadastre delivers solar radiation data of rooftops and parkings at a specific region.

This tool can provide you information about the solar potential of buildings roofs and about the economic viability of installing a solar power system on your rooftop.

 

 

Quality


Calibration of long term HelioClim-3 time series using in-situ measurements

 

Check and rescue your in-situ measurements with satellite derived services

 

 

This service delivers:

  • a complete report on the quality (QC, which stands for Quality Check) of the in-situ measurements
  • the calibration results of the long term HelioClim-3 time series with the short term time series of in-situ measurements.

Quality check and calibration result report over Carpentras.

 

 

SoDa's expertise can help you in case of:

  • issues in the measurements with your instruments
  • observation of time shifts in your time series
  • you need to check if your instrument is correctly calibrated

We can complete your measures if you have gaps in your data. Our routines are capable of completing any solar radiation and meteorological time series containing holes.
