Draker's PV Prospector is a self-contained data acquisition system designed for remote operation at unattended solar PV sites. During site assessment, solar resource information and other meteorological data are collected from PV Prospector over a period of between 12 and 24 months. The data is then transmitted wirelessly in near real time to Draker's servers, where it can be accessed and viewed by customers via Draker's Web application.
This data is also shared throughout the prospecting period with AWST's meteorologists and solar engineers. Using calibrated resource and energy assessment methods and a measure-correlate-predict approach, AWST develops energy production models under a range of uncertainty scenarios.
