Solar Energy for Electricity and Heat in Chile - Manuals and Documents
Overview of Guides
This guideline presents the overview of the principal guides that were elaborated in the "Solar Energy for Electricity and Heat in Chile" project. These are the following:Guide for an initial evaluation of a PV installation, Operation and maintenance of PV systems, Guide to good and bad practices of photovoltaic installations on roofs, Document Check List pre-inspection TE4.
Guide for an Initial Evaluation of a PV Installation
The guide for the initial evaluation of buildings for the installation of photovoltaic systems provides information on the requirements that a building must meet to install a PV system, how to select a building that deserves a more detailed analysis at the feasibility of installation of a PV system and how to discard the non-feasible buildings.
Operation and Maintenance of PV Systems
This guide presents the critical aspects of operation and maintenance of photovoltaic systems, which helps to diagnose and evaluate the operating parameters of a photovoltaic plant. This allows identifying faults and regular preventive maintenance activities and their frequencies.
Guide to Good and Bad Practices of Photovoltaic Installations on Roofs
This document is an annex to the checklist guide pre-inspection TE4, which presents good and bad practices observed in the implementation and startup of PV systems connected to the network. These practices are shown in order for future PV systems to be installed and operated properly.
Document Checklist Pre-inspection TE4
This document provides a detailed list of all aspects of the Checklist used by the Superintendence of Electricity and Fuels (SEC) for the verification of power generation projects up to 100 kWp in Chile. It was published in 2017 and is for authorized electrical installers and for companies that install photovoltaic projects, and aims to facilitate a self-assessment prior the inspection of the SEC.
Guideline for a Field Visit and Client Requirements
This guideline is addressed to customers and installers of PV systems, and is a suggestion for an evaluation in a field visit. It focuses on small installations with up to 10 kW of installed power, preferably for low voltage clients, and should be completed, ideally, by a professional technician. In this document, the client requirements and the characteristics of the property should be specified.
Guideline for an Offer of Photovoltaic Systems
This guideline is addressed to photovoltaic installers and is a suggestion for a complete and good offer for residential customers. It focuses on small installations with up to 10 kW of installed capacity, preferably for low voltage clients.
