Asian Development Bank (ADB) donated a 60kW rooftop Solar PV power plant for university and it was installed at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Jaffna. This was primarily built for demonstration and research purposes.
A total of 240 number of 250W poly-crystalline solar modules have been installed to generate the intended capacity. Here both String inverters (capacity of 55kW) and micro inverters (capacity of 5kW) have been installed, the performance of each inverter can be monitored separately. This system also includes advanced monitoring facilities to monitor various performance such as the energy production from each subsystem, solar irradiance and weather-related parameters. This captured data are being used for research purposes. The project is under operation since 16th October 2016. Ms. Vinothine has been assigned to monitor the progress of rooftop solar PV plant.
