Project management plan of solar photovoltaic ability plant


Solar photovoltaic cells convert sunshine into electricity and many solar photovoltaic electric power stations have been built, mainly in Europe. As of September 2010, the major photovoltaic (PV) power plants in the world are the Sarnia Photovoltaic Electric power Herb (Canada, 80 MW), Olmedilla Photovoltaic Park (Spain, 60 MW), the Strasskirchen Solar Recreation area (Germany, 54 MW), the Lieberose Photovoltaic Park (Germany, 53 MW), the Puertollano Photovoltaic Park (Spain, 50 MW), the Moura Photovoltaic Vitality Station (Portugal, 46 MW), and the Waldpolenz Solar Recreation area (Germany, 40 MW). [1]

This proposal is perfect for establishing a 50 MW (10 MW x 5 Phases) capacity solar photovoltaic ability plant based on latest High Electricity Modules using cells consisting of Multi-Crystalline Silicon Technology / Tandem Junction Thin Film Technology, which has been effectively developed for commercial implementation and has been providing reliable power era about the world for some years now. The solar photovoltaic vitality project is proposed to be create in Jodhpur district of Rajasthan, India which is among the finest matched locations in terms of higher annual direct normal insolation (DNI), favourable climatic conditions and land availability Some photovoltaic electric power stations that happen to be presently proposed will have a capacity of 150 MW or even more.

Many of these plants are included with agriculture plus some use innovative monitoring systems that follow the sun's daily course over the sky to generate more electricity than normal fixed-mounted systems. You can find no fuel prices or emissions during operation of the power stations.


This proposal examines the techniques of job management used in development of a solar photovoltaic power plant Project. The backdrop of the job will be explained including its planning, Execution, Operation & Maintenance and Financial analysis a project; critical success factors for the job implementation are identified presenting a synopsis of project composition, methods, hazards, etc.


The aims for the task will be the successful conclusion of solar photovoltaic electric power vegetable, on budget, on time and safely and securely. The objectives are also to develop 'world course' job management guidelines within the solar industry.

Research Methodology

The PMBOK Guide says that projects are composed of two kinds of process: project management techniques and product-oriented processes (which specify and create the task product). Project management procedures are further split into initiating, planning, execution, controlling and closing procedures. This proposal mainly specializes in the core functions of planning, execution and managing.

The task management process teams depicted in figure 1 are initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and managing, and closing. Initiating defines and authorizes the project or a project period. Planning defines and refines targets and plans the plan of action required to attain the targets and opportunity that the job was undertaken to handle. Executing integrates people and other resources to handle the project management arrange for the project. Monitoring and controlling regularly methods and monitors progress to recognize variances from the job management plan so that corrective action can be taken when necessary to meet project targets. Closing formalizes popularity of the merchandise, service, or consequence and brings the project or a job phase to an orderly end. Physique illustrates the comparative depth, breadth, and interrelationship between these process groups.


Planning in organizations constitutes both organizational procedure for creating and preserving an idea; and the emotional process of thinking about the activities required to create a desired goal on some level. Therefore, it is a fundamental property of clever behaviour. This thought process is essential to the creation and refinement of an idea or integration from it with other strategies. It combines forecasting of innovations with the preparation of scenarios of how to react to them. A significant albeit often ignored facet of planning, is the partnership it keeps with forecasting. Forecasting serves as a predicting what the future can look like, whereas planning predicts what the near future should look like.

The above situation is often used to spell it out the formal strategies found in the creation of documents, endeavour, diagrams, meetings to discuss the top issues to be addressed, objectives to be satisfied and the technique to be followed. Beyond this planning has an alternative meaning with respect to the political or financial context where it is used.

There are ten core processes

scope planning

scope definition

activity definition

resource planning

activity sequencing

activity period estimating

cost estimating

schedule development

cost budgeting

10. Project plan development.

The end result from these processes project plans makes up an suggestions to the performing processes. A variation is made between the project plans proper and the task performance baselines.


Executing contains the process used to complete the task defined in the project management plan to complete the project's requirements. Execution process involves coordinating people and resources as well as integrating and doing the actions of the task in accordance with the job management plan. The deliverables are produced as outputs from the processes performed as described in the job management plan.

Executing Processes

Project Plan Execution - carrying out the activities

Complete Tasks/Work Packages

Information Distribution

Scope Confirmation - popularity of job scope

Quality Confidence - analyzing overall project performance frequently; meeting standards

Team Development - growing team and specific skill sets to enhance the project

Progress Meetings

Monitoring and controlling

Monitoring and handling involves those processes which have performed to see job execution so that potential problems can be discovered regularly and corrective action can be studied place. When necessary to control the execution of the job. The key gain is that job performance is detected and assessed regularly to recognize variances from the job management plan.

Monitoring and Managing includes

Measuring the on-going task activities.

Monitoring the job variables (cost, effort, scope, etc. ) from the job management plan and the task performance baseline.

Identify corrective actions to address issues and risks properly.

Influencing the factors which could circumvent included change control so only approved changes are implemented

This must be achieved in an integrated manner at regular intervals, not in a haphazard, arbitrary way. Any significant departures from the budget and the timetable must be reported immediately, because these anomalies affect the viability and the success of the complete project.

This will lead to adapting the job plan, budget and/or work plan as necessary to keep the project on the right track. The project progress and changes must be documented and communicated to the team members in a consistent, reliable and appropriate manner for every level of the project team.

Success criteria for job control

Use the job plan as the principal guide for co-ordinating your project.

Consistently monitor and update the program.

Remember that quality communication is an integral to regulate.

Monitor improvement on the project against the plan frequently.

Get involved.

Adapt the task agenda, budget and/or work plan as necessary to keep the project on the right track.

Document project improvement and changes and converse them to associates.

What monitoring should complete?

Communicate project status and changes to other project team members

Inform management (and clients or customers) about the position of the project

Provide the justification to make project adjustments

Document current plans set alongside the original job plan

Project Performance must be measured regularly to recognize the variances from the plan. Variances are fed into control techniques in the many knowledge areas. To the amount the significant Variances are observed. Adjustments to the program are created by repeating the appropriate job planning process.

Project information should be

clearly state the current position of the project

compare actual accomplishments with the organized target achievements

draw attention to critical issues

identify problems and propose solutions

promote effective management and control

Project status reports

"It isn't simply a subject of keeping the opportunity from creeping, or a matter of completing the least expensive and fastest project; it is creating the appropriate Opportunity and delivering the commensurate product, service, or result".

The modules will be surface mounted and tilted 27 diplomas to face the sunlight. The ground mounting will require a set level surface and will be set into concrete. The modules will require a location that is unshaded from the sun. Any vegetation underneath the modules will need to be stored to an even below that of the modules to avoid shading. All of the modules will be at least 1. 0m from the bottom. It is assumed that is adequate to keep carefully the modules above the elevation of sand deposition at the website during sand storm.

Monitoring and controlling

Monitoring and handling consists of those processes performed to observe job execution so that potential problems can be discovered regularly and corrective action can be studied, when necessary, to regulate the execution of the project. The key benefit is that project performance is witnessed and measured regularly to recognize variances from the project management plan.

Identify corrective actions to address issues and risks properly.

Influencing the factors which could circumvent integrated change control so only approved changes are implemented

In multi-phase assignments, the monitoring and controlling process also provides opinions between project phases, in order to put into practice corrective or preventive actions to bring the project into conformity with the task management plan.

Operation and maintenance

Whether a solar seed carries out well in the long-term and remains theoretically available is dependent to a large degree on servicing and regular maintenance. This will be completed by designated electro-mechanical experts together with technicians from the particular component manufacturers.

To keep all components optimally available, an electronic data processing device in the solar power plant will permanently gather and examine all relevant performance data and possible problem messages. Using aim for/actual comparison, data from the energy plant will be continually compared with data from an on-site weather train station.

Possible errors will be accurately located and immediately offered via email, Text or fax to the relevant service technicians. They can then, using their workplace, conduct problem repair through on-line distant maintenance.

Operational terminal both in the short and long-term


The 89 pet watts of sunlight achieving the Earth's surface is plentiful - almost 6, 000 times more than the 15 terawatts exact carbon copy of average power consumed by humans. Additionally, solar electric era gets the highest power thickness (global mean of 170 W/m) among renewable energies.

Solar ability is pollution-free during use. Production end-wastes and emissions are controllable using existing pollution control buttons. End-of-use recycling technologies are under development.

PV installations can operate for quite some time with little maintenance or treatment after their original set-up, so following the primary capital cost of building any solar powered energy plant, functioning costs are really low in comparison to existing power technology.

Solar electric generation is economically superior where grid interconnection or fuel move is difficult, costly or impossible. Long-standing for example satellites, island neighborhoods, distant locations and sea vessels.

When grid-connected, solar electric era replaces some or all the highest-cost electricity used during times of peak demand (in most climatic locations). This may reduce grid launching, and can eliminate the dependence on local battery to provide for use within times of darkness. These features are enabled by world wide web metering. Time-of-use world wide web metering can be highly favourable, but requires newer electric metering, which may be impractical for some users.

Grid-connected solar electricity can be used locally thus minimizing transmission/distribution loss (transmission losses in america were roughly 7. 2% in 1995).

Compared to fossil and nuclear energy options, hardly any research money has been invested in the introduction of solar panels, so there exists significant room for improvement. Nevertheless, experimental high efficiency solar panels curently have efficiencies of over 40% in case of concentrating photovoltaic skin cells and efficiencies are quickly increasing while mass-production costs are quickly falling.


Photovoltaic are costly to install. As the modules are often warranted for up to 20 years, much of the investment in a home-mounted system may be lost if the home-owner moves and the buyer places less value on the system than the seller.

Solar electricity is seen to be costly.

Solar electricity is not produced at night and is a lot reduced in cloudy conditions. Therefore, a storage space or complementary power system is required.

Solar electricity development depends on the limited ability density of the location's insolation. Average daily end result of a set plate collector at latitude tilt in the contiguous US is 3-7 kilowatt and on average lower in European countries.

Solar cells produce DC which must be converted to AC (utilizing a grid tie up inverter) when used in existing distribution grids. This incurs a power loss of 4-12%.
