DEROUICH, W.; BESBES, M.  y  OLIVENCIA, J. D.. Prefeasibility Study of a Solar Power Plant Project and Optimization of a Meteorological Station Performance. J. appl. res. technol [online]. 2014, vol.12, n.1, pp.72-79. ISSN 2448-6736.

A prefeasibility study of a solar power plant project was carried out in order to study and search the best location to install a concentrated solar power plant according to a tender with the Algerian electricity company "SPE" following a specific criteria and methodology in order to obtain a site with a maximum possible irradiation along with other economic constraints. Normally, eleven years of solar irradiation data from an on-ground weather station is needed for site assessment, such data are not available, hence the typical meteorological year irradiation based on satellite imagery results is needed in order to have the accurate value, therefore we can give the right evaluation for the site candidate. Additionally, an analysis of a weather measurement station was carried out to ensure the proper functioning of the weather data reception and analysis processes, and thus to optimize the algorithm of a data logger in order to get the right measurement with a minimum error. The correction algorithm was developed by weather scientists and was added to the data logger main program.

Palabras llave : Site assessment; satellite imagery; direct normal irradiation; data logger; correction algorithm; meteorological station; pyranometer.
