Title
(EN) SOLAR PANELS CLEANING, PROTECTION AND EFFICIENCY OPTIMIZATION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE NETTOYAGE, DE PROTECTION ET D'OPTIMISATION DU RENDEMENT DE PANNEAUX SOLAIRES
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention is related to a solar panels cleaning, protection and efficiency optimization system (1), that controls the solar panel (3) radiation harvesting in a modular and phased way. The system has a set of solar tubes (5 - 12) cover equipment (2), that are enabled and disabled according with the measurements performed by a thermal sensor (4) placed at the panel (3) exit, or by other conditions defined by the electronics microcontroller (14) of the system, performing also cleaning and protection actions of the tubes (5 - 12) surface, by using a rubber connected to their surface. The present invention is useful to optimize the solar panels energy efficiency, eliminating the problems associated to the overheating, that occurs when the solar availability is high, allowing also to reduce the solar panels maintenance actions.
(FR)
La présente invention porte sur un système de nettoyage, de protection et d'optimisation du rendement de panneaux solaires (1), lequel système commande la collecte de rayonnement du panneau solaire (3) d'une façon modulaire et phasée. Le système comporte un ensemble d'équipement de couverture (2) de tubes solaires (5 - 12), qui sont validés et invalidés en fonction des mesures effectuées par un capteur thermique (4) disposé à la sortie du panneau (3), ou par d'autres conditions définies par le micro-dispositif de commande électronique (14) du système, réalisant également des actions de nettoyage et de protection de la surface des tubes (5 - 12), par l'utilisation d'un caoutchouc relié à leur surface. La présente invention est utile pour optimiser le rendement en énergie des panneaux solaires, éliminer les problèmes associés à la surchauffe, qui se produisent lorsque la disponibilité solaire est élevée, permettant également de réduire les actions de maintenance des panneaux solaires.
