  • a) This test checks if the power plant is performing at or above the performance ratio agreed or warranted within the EPC contract. A standard testing period would be continuous testing for a minimum of Seven consecutive days. Typically, a minimum

irradiance will be defined and the performance ratio measured for the period in which that irradiance

irradiance will be defined and the performance ratio measured for the period in which that irradiance is exceeded. The electrical energy generated should be recorded at the metering point. Input from all energy meters will be added to get energy generation from Solar power plant. Energy meters shall have minimum accuracy class of 0.2).This value of energy generated will be taken for calculation of performance ratio (PR). Global incident radiation value shall be considered for plane of array irradiation for calculation of PR.

  • b) The procedure for PG demonstration test shall be as follows:

Step – 1: A calibrated Pyranometer shall be installed by the contractor at the location mutually agreed by the Contractor and Owner. The test report for the calibration shall

be submitted by the Contractor for approval by the Owner.
