Narendra Modi the man behind India energy revolution by Trace Software International

Narendra Modi: the man behind the Indian energy revolution

In accordance with the Declaration of Paris during the International Solar Alliance of the 30th  November 2015, the head of the Indian government, Narendra Modi, takes over the reins of the energy revolution in the country. The ambitious goal is to achieve the production of 100 GW of solar energy by 2022, out of a total of 175 GW that the country plans to produce from renewable sources.

The data speak clearly. The Indian market is not only flourishing. India is competing to become a leader in the solar market and overcome China and the US. There is no doubt for the head of the Indian government. The main aim is to make solar energy one of the main sources of energy production in the near future.

According to IHS Markit, with 11 GW, India is destined to become the second largest solar photovoltaic market in 2018, usurping the United States. The global demand reaches 113 GW this year and according to the same forecast,  the fourth quarter will be the largest in the history for the installations, with 34 GW expected.

2017 was also a fairly important year for the photovoltaic industry with an addition of 5525.98 MW in terms of photovoltaic energy production capacity.

This is a result of the government chaired by Narendra Modi, which shows that not only is there a moral compromise with what was promised at the Paris Climate Change Conference in 2015, but real efforts to ensure a green future to the country.

In fact, the country’s commitments have also been renewed at the first summit of the International Solar Alliance held in New Delhi in March 2018. The event brings together 121 countries engaged in the debate for the promotion and exchange of technologies for solar energy production.

India is accelerating the development of projects in the renewable energy sector, to provide affordable, reliable and clean energy to its 1.3 billion people. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) stated that the country generated 12,973.6 kWh from solar power, in the financial year 2017-2018.

To achieve this, a series of strategic actions have been lately adopted: incentives based on energy generation, capital and interest subsidies, subsidized loans and tax incentives, regulations regarding the quality of the installations.

More in details:

– The government has issued guidelines for the supply of solar and wind energy through competitive auctions and has extended the renewable purchase obligation (RPO) until 2018-19, also notifying the standards for the implementation of the plants PV.

The Solar Photovoltaics, Systems, Devices and Components Goods (Requirements for Compulsory Registration) Order, 2017 was issued in September 2017. It is a regulation that sets the minimum standards to guarantee the quality of photovoltaic instruments in the Indian market, including the aspects of manufacturing, storage, sales, distribution.

– To encourage domestic production, the MNRE provides a series of incentives that also include national aid for the production of the solar system.

These are the necessary measures to reach the ambitious goal of 175 GW, set by 2022. Poor quality of installations may pose serious challenges in the future. For example, improperly sized glands can allow water in or a broken cable could melt the roof, not to talk about the system performance degradation issues.

Trace Software International can help with the management of the entire photovoltaic installation thanks to the archelios™ suite. This software solution enables feasibility study, bankability, 3D design, to the compliance and calculation notes, right up to the operation and maintenance management.

Who is the BIM Manager by Trace Software International

The BIM Manager

The advent of BIM has changed so far the work processes known in the construction world. As part of this change, a new generation of BIM professional and specialist roles have come up in all aspects of architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC), from the initial design to the project management through to the construction phase.

Before defining what the BIM Manager is and what are its functions, it seems appropriate to remember what it is meant by BIM.

According to Kimmel (Building Information Modeling: Planning and Managing Construction Projects with 4D CAD and Simulations,2008), Building Information Model is a virtual and interactive representation of a building, potentially containing all the information required to construct the building, using computers and software. The term generally refers to both the model(s) representing the physical characteristics of the project and to all the information contained in and attached to the component of these model. A BIM may include any of or all the 2D, 3D, 4D (time element scheduling), 5D (cost information), or nD (energy, sustainability, facilities management, etc., information) represents of a project.

BIM undoubtedly marks a paradigm shift in which CAD loses its centrality in planning and modeling projects. It is therefore evident that we are not simply talking about technological innovation, but more profound changes in terms of management, level of processes, and also mindset.

 

What is the BIM Manager?

 

The BIM Manager is the face of BIM.

This professional figure is responsible for the planning, design, delivery and efficient management of the BIM plan. This is not a managerial role in the traditional sense of the word. Rather it is the one who manages the technology, the processes, and the policies in order to guide and guarantee the collaborative process among the various actors during the whole construction process.

Its fundamental mission is to examine and evaluate the objectives of the BIM process and develop a coherent plan that satisfies customer needs, creating synergies between the team experience and the availability of the resources (Kymmel, 2008).

In the near future, BIM will be the DNA of every construction project. This implies a change in the dynamics known up to now in the construction world. BIM is an integrated practice that offers a solution to minimize problems related to the fragmentation in the construction industry.

The electrical safety at work by Trace Software International

Electrical safety at work

There is no doubt that electrical safety is one of the fundamental element in assessing the quality of jobs. According to ESAW methodology, an accident at work is defined as a discrete occurrence in the course of work which leads to physical or mental harm.

Occupational accidents are common and numerous in the modern society. And, as electricity is an essential factor of modern economies, its use at work is inevitable.  Electricity is a serious workplace hazard as it has enough power to cause death,  so even the simplest electrical system can become dangerous.

Electricity can be defined as the flow of electrons through a conductor.

Resultado de imagen de ley de ohm

R is the resistance of the conductor,

is the potential difference in the circuit at the extremes of the resistance

is the current intensity

Resistance is the tendency of a material to oppose the flow of charge. The current will flow through the easiest possible path (minimum energy principle), which means, as conductor’s resistance increases, the current ability to cross it decreases. Based on their electrical behavior, the materials are subdivided into conductors and insulatorsThe conductors are those materials that allow electric current to flow. On the other hand, materials that prevent the passage of current are insulators.

In the electric field, the overload occurs when the system is crossed by a certain quantity of electrons, which is actually higher of its capacity. This is why, in an electrical circuit, cables need to be sized in order to guarantee a specific flow rate.  Any electric current that exceeds the rating of the circuit leads to an overcurrent.

Electricity is recognized as a serious workplace hazard and failure to comply with the specific regulations can be of fatal consequences. According to Health & Safety Executive, there are four main types of electrical injuries: Electric shockElectrical burnsLoss of muscle controlThermal burns.

However, the electricity has enough power to cause death by electrocution. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) notes that most electrical accidents are caused by one of these factors: unsafe equipment or installation, unsafe environment or unsafe work practices.

Trace Software International has been empowering electrical solutions since 1987. This is why the company promotes safe work with electricity and electrical systems.

The proper sizing of cabling is the most important design feature for the reliability, consistency, and safety of the system. elec calc ™ is the CAE software solution dedicated to the sizing of electrical installations, the only one in the world that allows integrating the management of high and low voltage in the same project and in compliance with international standards. In a more and more demanding market, characterized by ultra-competitiveness, the latest software version guarantees excellent results in terms of safety, time and productivity, including flawless installation.

The success factors in the booming solar market by Trace Software International

The success factors in the booming solar market

The solar market is booming at a pace never seen before. We have entered a new era, with record growth figures. According to the latest report by the International Energy Agency (IEA) it is expected that the photovoltaic sector will drive the renewable energy market in the coming years, beating the hydroelectric and wind sector. Solar energy is increasingly in direct competition with fossil fuels. A photovoltaic (PV) deployment of 110 gigawatts (GW) is expected in 2018.

 

Which are the contributing factors to the industry’s success?

 

The expansion of renewable energy, such as solar energy, is a key element in improving air quality and the sustainability of the mix of our energy sources. With more attention to alternative and renewable energies, there are many interesting investment opportunities. In 2017, the global investment in renewable energy grew by 2% compared to the previous year, reaching 279.8 billion dollars. It is the solar energy sector that attracts most of the investments with a total of 161 billion dollars in 2016 and a growth rate of 18% in the same year. (UN Environment, Bloomberg New Energy Finance).

“The extraordinary surge in solar investment, around the world, shows how much can be achieved when we commit to growth without harming the environment,” said Head of UN Environment Erik Solheim.

 

The decline of the price of photovoltaics has certainly played a key role in empowering the global demand. The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) estimates that by 2020 the price of energy production in large solar power plants could fall to around three US cents per kWh in many regions of the world. Photovoltaic becomes therefore accessible and attractive. In 2017, costs continued to fall for solar, in particular. The benchmark levelized cost of electricity for a utility-scale photovoltaic project dropped to $86 per megawatt-hour, down 15% on a year earlier and 72% since 2009. Some of this was due to a fall in capital costs, some to improvements in efficiency according to the Global Trends in Renewable Energy Investment 2018 Report. 

 

The proliferation of solar contracts invites to reflect on the policies of renewable sources. The increased competition has pushed governments to reduce prices, however public incentives are undoubtedly less important than before. The trend is clear, the expansion of the sector will be driven by solar tenders. According to the GTM Research, there are already 53 national markets in which there is currently a call for tenders or an auction program, compared to 32 in the second half of 2016. In addition, there are 29 other national markets where a project has been discussed or planned. Furthermore, power purchase agreements, tenant power, and sector coupling are generating new business models.

 

Solar photovoltaics are not anymore a thing of the future. Technical advances are undoubtedly a main driver of the solar market developmentfueled by the dynamic and competitive PV production. Main actors are driving the mass production with cost-effective technology and efficient manufacturing processes

 

The archelios™ suite is the state -of- the- art photovoltaic software solution to manage the entirety of a photovoltaic project. It is the unique tool in the market which allows the solar professionals to increase the performance of the project with the utmost precision. From the feasibility study, bankability, 3D design, to the compliance and calculation notes, right up to the operation and maintenance management, archelios™ suite sharpen your competitive position in the booming market of photovoltaics.

Why should you install solar panels by Trace Software International

Why should you install a photovoltaic solar system?

Solar energy offers a clean, climate-friendly energy resource that is abundant and inexhaustible for humanity. Solar energy is the energy associated with solar radiation and it is the primary source of energy on Earth. Solar energy is what reaches the Earth in the form of electromagnetic radiation from the Sun, where it is generated by a process of natural nuclear fusion that can reach 15 million degrees centigrade.

The sun has produced energy for billions of years. This energy travels to the earth in the form of rays. The sun’s rays transmit two main forms of energy:

- light energy, in the form of photons, which can be converted into electrical energy using certain materials that release electrons in a natural way when exposed to light. This phenomenon, known as “photovoltaic effect”, is the basis of all solar energy systems.

thermal energy, or heat, which we have always used to heat our homes and greenhouses, for example.

 

How does the transformation of solar energy into photovoltaic energy happen?

The term photovoltaic derives from the “phos“, which means light and “Volt” from the name of the Italian scientist Alessandro Volta, inventor of the pile. The sun is a form of clean and renewable energy, which is converted into electricity without any combustion process.

Solar panels are predominantly made of materials that are known to have the property of naturally converting sunlight into electrical energy.

These materials are known as semiconductors. The production of electricity using the sun is obtained thanks to the reverse photoelectric effect of the junction, which manifests itself in the semiconductor.

When sunlight hits these semiconductors, they release free electrons to move, which are channeled through the device and produce an electric current.

 

 

 

How do solar panels work by Trace Software International

 

 

Why then install a photovoltaic solar system?

The decision to self-produce clean electricity through solar irradiation has over time become an option not only convenient and responsible, but increasingly economical and intelligent.

The photovoltaic installations, in fact, concurrently allow the cutting of energy costs, energy self-sufficiency and a lower impact of the variations linked to the individual tariffs of energy distributors. The convenience of a photovoltaic solar system depends, in any case, on several factors including geographic positioning, compatibility with local conditions such as local temperature and inclination of photovoltaic modules or incentives policies.

Installing a photovoltaic solar system today can represent a way to avoid the insecurity of the fluctuations in energy prices. The primary energy source, the sun, has no supply costs and is available to an almost infinite extent.

With a 30% rate of growth expected in Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, and France, the PV market in Europe is blooming. The causes are not to be found in incentive policies but rather in lowering costs and technological innovations.

The archelios™ suite is the Trace Software International software solution to conceive the entire photovoltaic installation. This cutting-edge software provides solar professionals with innovative and powerful features to improve the performance of their photovoltaic project as it permits to work on common data and at the utmost accuracy. From feasibility study, 3D simulation, electrical sizing to PV monitoring, this is a comprehensive software solution.

The challanges of the electrical design of a power plant by Trace Software International

The challanges of the electrical design of a power plant

By 2040 global energy consumption is expected to grow by 28% according to the 2017 International Energy Outlook. The energy sector is therefore faced with a major challenge: meeting the global energy need. In modern society, human beings cannot live without electricity so the power plant has an essential and strategic role.

The operation of technological devices in the home such as refrigeration, means of transport such as airplanes, machinery in critical infrastructures such as hospitals would be unthinkable without electricity. 

The power plant is the industrial facility where the electrical power is generated. Electricity is a secondary energy source as it derives from the transformation of primary energy sources. Primary sources can be used directly, without any type of treatment: coal, sun, wind, uranium, oil are some of them. As well there are different types of power plants, which are classified depending on the type of fuel is used in the process.

A power plant can be classified depending on the type of fuel used in the generation process.  In a nuclear power plant, uranium and thorium are used as the primary fuel. The hydroelectric power harnesses the gravitational force of flowing water. In the thermal power plant, electricity is produced by the combustion of oil, coal or natural gas. Geothermal power plants exploit the energy in the Earth’s crust.  Wind and solar power plants use solar or wind energy.

What are the challenges in the design of the electrical system of a power plant?

The primary objective of power plants is obviously the correct functioning of the entire plant so that there are no interruptions in the production of energy. The reliable and safe supply of energy is the top priority. Any eventual failure of the plant would cause both material and moral damages.

The entity that transmits electricity from generation plants to local distribution networks, passing through the electricity grid is the Transmission system operator. Natural disasters and imbalances in the generation or in the consumption of energy are the main sources of concern. For this reason, regional and national transmission system operators are interconnected to minimize the event of network failure.

The roles of the TSO in an electricity market include managing the security of the energy system in real time and coordinating the supply and demand for electricity that avoids fluctuations in frequency or interruptions of supply.

It is required that the System Operator maintain a continuous (second to second) balance between the power supply of the power plants and the demand of the consumers, and also ensure the provision of reserves that allow sudden contingencies. The System Operator achieves this by determining the optimal combination of generating stations and reserve providers for each trading period in the market, instructing generators when and how much electricity to generate. Managing any contingent event that causes the disruption of the balance between the supply and demand is also essential.

In the event of a breakdown or an unexpected interruption, it is important that the electrical installation guarantees sufficient emergency supply at least to ensure that the equipment is stopped. Improper grounding, inadequate wiring or poor maintenance practices are the most common issues which are affecting the quality of the of the power supply.

elec calc™  is the software for low voltage and high voltage electrical installations calculation. It features all the necessary functions to carry out a complete analysis of critical facilities with detailed studies. It further allows the user to check several operational scenarios such as emergency, network change-over – to analyze each operational condition using the behavior and sizing of the installation.
