1 PV String Monitoring Solution
Electronic Cards for use in PV Combiner Box Applications

2 Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution
The goals of PV String Monitoring For the investor: to measure energy produced and forecasted revenues For the operator: to detect defects for maintenance  But most existing systems have huge limitations Precision is not good enough at inverter level Monitoring systems are proprietary Data interpretation is not easy  Need for high quality universal monitoring systems

3 Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution
The advantages of string level monitoring Detection of problems as soon as they appear Precise localization of problems in the PV installation Pro-active maintenance Optimized PV installation performance Secured ROI, predictive revenues and reduced OPEX

4 Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution
Performance Ratio Monitoring of instantaneous electrical parameters Energy produced over time T Energy expected over time T Performance Ratio = Monitoring of operating conditions: T°, sun,…

5 Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution
A precise control of the installation from the PV field to the inverter String Monitoring in the combiner box Communication Gateway (GPRS, Ethernet, …) Monitoring Software Monitoring Software

6 Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution
Product Offering Flexible, High Performance Solution Three Electronic Cards MAIN Card AUX Card PROBE Card

7 Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution
Monitor 6 to 30 strings by connecting up to (4) AUX Cards to the MAIN Card Monitor up to 8 external inputs (7 analog + 1 digital) by connecting the PROBE Card

8 3 external relay control
Diagnostic & control: 4 digital inputs 3 external relay control Communication: MODBUS on isolated RS485 (1.2km cable) Aux Card extension: up to 4 Aux. cards in parallel 6 strings monitored per card 6, 12, 18, 24 or 30 strings can be monitored by one single box Probe Card extension: 1 digital sensor 7 analog sensors: 4-20mA, ±1% precision 1-10V, ±1% precision 32bits microcontrollers Modbus Communication Measurement & data processing 16Mbit memory (6 months data storage worse case) Reliable operating range -40°C to +70°C operating temperature onboard temperature sensors (-40°C to +100°C ±2°C) Autonomous power supply from PV strings 250Vdc to 1000Vdc string voltage Low power consumption: 6 PV string inputs Max voltage: ± 1000 Vdc Max current: ± 25 A Precision: ± 0.5% Integrated Bus Bar 150A combined output (two output terminals, 75A each)

9 Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution
Features and Benefits Built-in Power Supply – Take power directly from the PV string. Eliminates the need to purchase and install a separate power supply to power the monitoring device Accuracy – 0.5% precision Voltage and Current Measurement – Additional voltage measurement provides a greater level of detail and is required by some integrators

10 Mersen PV String Monitoring Solution
Features and Benefits Flexible 6-String Device – Allows for greater flexibility (can be configured for 6, 12, 18, 24 or 30 string boxes) Integrated Bus Bar – Combines strings into 1 or 2 outputs based on ampere rating. Eliminates the need for separate comb bus bar Increased Functionality – Option to connect up to 8 external sensors (anemometer, thermometer, sun sensor, etc…)
