CCAT Monitor installation on Harpst St, Arcata Supervisor: Ben Scurfield

I participated in the installation of a paramonitoring system and thermal intake and outtake monitoring system on the HSU campus. A paramonitor measures collector’s watts per square meter. The intake and outtake collectors measure the water temperature coming in and out of the collector. This is an outline of the photovoltaic system:


System overview:

  • 2 kilowatt
  • 8 panels
  • Inverter: Advanced Energy
  • 120 volts

Power produced:

  • Approximately 1800 watts per day

Cost:

  • $20,000

Efficiency:

  • 20% efficient panels
  • 80% efficient in conversion in inverter
  • <1% line loss
