Solar energy is a renewable and clean energy source that can be harnessed through a variety of technologies including photovoltaic (PV) cells, concentrated solar power (CSP) systems, and solar thermal panels. The solar energy has the following sub-technical divisions: 

Monitoring and Control Systems

Heating and Cooling System Control

Solar Lighting Systems

Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV)

Off-grid Solar Systems

Solar Energy Storage Systems

The control systems and algorithms are used in various sub-technical divisions of solar energy systems to optimize performance, improve efficiency, and ensure safe and reliable operation. 
This is where NISO can support you and speed up time-to-market: 

Inverter Control System

Inverter control is used to convert the DC output of the solar panels into AC power that can be used by appliances or delivered to the power grid. The control system regulates the voltage, frequency, and other parameters of the AC power to ensure that it is stable and compatible with the grid.

Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) Control

MPPT control is used to optimize the output of PV systems by tracking the maximum power point of the solar panels. The control system adjusts the voltage and current to ensure that the solar panels are operating at their maximum efficiency.

Battery Management Systems

This unit manages and monitors the performance of rechargeable batteries of solar plants. The batteries are used for the compensation role in the inversion process of AC to DC or DC to AC. BMS also regulates the charging and discharging process of battery cells, ensures that each cell is functioning properly, and protects the battery from damage due to overcharging, over-discharging, or overheating and maximizing batteries' lifetime by enhancing its endurance against harsh conditions.

Solar Energy Storage Systems

Control systems and algorithms are used in solar energy storage systems to manage the charge and discharge cycles of the batteries or other energy storage devices. This includes the use of control algorithms to regulate the charging current and voltage, as well as the discharge current and voltage, to ensure that the battery is operating within safe and optimal limits.

Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Systems

Control systems and algorithms are used in CSP systems to ensure that the solar collectors are accurately tracking the sun and focusing the sun's energy onto the receiver. This involves the use of control algorithms to adjust the angle and orientation of the solar collectors to maintain optimal efficiency.

Heating and Cooling System Control

Control systems and algorithms are used in solar thermal systems to regulate the temperature and flow of the working fluid (e.g., water or antifreeze solution) through the solar collectors and storage tanks. This includes the use of control algorithms to adjust the flow rates, valve positions, and temperatures to optimize the thermal performance of the system.
