To ensure that the Solar system installed on the factory’s roof can operate optimally and safely, investors will need to pay attention to many different factors and conditions. Today, Suntimes will share and help investors better understand this issue in the article below.
Note about factory machine type when installing Solar system.
Solar panels can be installed on all types of roofs. For the corrugated iron roof, a specially designed solar panel frame and galvanized roofing screws are used during the installation of the solar panels.
The roof cannot be penetrated when installed on ceilings with vertical seams. The solar panels are fixed with a clamp attached to the hem of the top.
As for flat roofs, ballast roof supports will be the best choice. This method will use the weight of the cement blocks to hold the panels in place and not have to punch through the roof.
Note about roof area
Suppose you want to install and operate the Solar system on the factory’s roof. In that case, the roof area must be large enough to install the system entirely, adequately, and by the capacity you want to install.
The primary purpose is to ensure that the Solar system usually operates safely without causing unintended circumstances. Besides, the solar power system will have different capacities depending on the roof area.
The tilt angle of the solar power system is essential when installing Solar systems. If placed at the right angle, the amount of sunlight absorbed will be more and more electricity will be generated to use.
Therefore, when installing Solar systems on the roof, it is essential to determine the inclined direction of the machine, the angle of sunlight from the top during the four seasons. This directly affects the performance of the system and the return of investors.
Especially in the summer, when the sun is the highest year. For that reason, suppliers and installers will prioritize optimizing the tilt angle for the summer to get the best power output.
In addition, investors should also avoid installing solar power systems on roofs that are obscured by trees, neighboring buildings, etc.
Notes to know about roof structure
Roof structure and architectural features are important factors that need to be carefully investigated before installing solar systems on the factory’s roof.
The survey will help check the current status and characteristics of the factory architecture. From there, to evaluate the structure, the defects can affect the bearing capacity of the building.
Next is to check the geometric dimensions and the main bearing components of the building, such as Concrete strength, the reinforcement cores have enough bearing capacity for the project.
Then check the diameter, the number of bolt connections, the connections at some key bearing positions. Check the verticality of columns, deflection of beams, construction roof truss,…
After checking, carefully calculate the bearing capacity of the roof structure. Experts will conduct an assessment according to current load and impact design standards to determine whether the building can install a Solar system or not or if any defects need to be overcome.
Connect the solar system to the power system of the factory
The connection of the Solar system to the power system of the plant will be supported by experts to install and connect ultimately.
Factors such as power transmission capacity, power consumption capacity, power storage capacity,… will be briefly examined and evaluated.
Finally, experts will conduct inspection and operation to ensure the system is operating normally and smoothly and hand it over to the factory.
Note shading when installing the Solar system on the factory’s roof.
When installing Solar systems on the roof, the panels need to be placed towards the sun and not covered by any obstructions.
Only then, the system’s ability to absorb energy and generate electricity can be optimal. Because just one solar panel in the system is covered by shade, it can significantly reduce the whole system’s performance. Even stop working in some special situations.
Therefore, it is necessary to ensure that any objects do not cover the panels. At the same time, it provides that changes in weather, seasons, and angles of sunlight do not cause future shadows to appear.
License required by regulation
The installation of Solar systems on the roof of the factory must fully comply with the required procedures and permits such as:
- License for project appraisal.
- Design approval and construction permit.
- Finally, according to current regulations, work quality management permits are types.
- License for fire prevention and fighting as prescribed
Above are all the notes that investors need to pay attention to when installing Solar systems for factory roofs. If investors still have any questions or questions that need to be answered, please get in touch with Suntimes immediately for the most detailed support and advice.
