DECK Releases Performance Benchmarking Tool

[Portland, OR] A recently released product from DECK Monitoring provides PV plant owners and operators with the ability to establish highquality array performance baselines. The SolarAnywhere SystemCheck integrates DECK’s existing software platform with site-specific satellite irradiance and predictive modeling data supplied by Clean Power Research. Users input system parameters such as modules, inverters and array azimuth values. The software utilizes NOAA GOES satellite imagery, with hourly granularity and resolution up to 1 kilometer, to calculate simulated performance estimations. The results are reported via the DECK software administration panel, providing plant operators the ability to chart predicted versus actual performance. In turn, this baseline data can be used to effectively manage O&M requirements for the system.
