Fire Solutions in Wind and Solar Energy Systems
With the increase of the human population in the world we live in, energy consumption has increased and energy resources are rapidly depleted. The rapid depletion of energy resources and their inadequacy for human beings leads to renewable energy sources and their use. In this respect, it is quite natural that wind and solar energy use rates have increased in recent years. In addition, the negative impact of human beings on the ecosystem is one of the most important reasons for the use of renewable energy sources. With the intense use of renewable energy systems, the possibility of fire in renewable energy systems increases. It is possible that unintended fires can be prevented before they occur, or if they occur, they can be extinguished with minimal damage.
Why does a fire occur in wind and solar energy systems?
In renewable energy systems such as wind and solar, a fire can occur for many different reasons. The main reasons are overheating of components in renewable energy systems, lightning strike, electrical failures. In order to prevent fires caused by various reasons, necessary measures and controls should be performed frequently. Otherwise, large fires may occur both in material and spiritual terms in wind and solar energy systems. It is possible to prevent the growth of these fires by taking the following measures.
Fire Precautions Used in Wind and Solar Energy Systems
Fire safety engineering used in wind and solar energy systems is very important. In the field of solar energy and wind energy, thermal systems and PV systems stand out. Thermal systems used in wind and solar energy systems allow the fluid to collapse by heating in the cycle. This ensures that the fire fighting teams do not encounter the danger of falling, sliding and hot fluid during the extinguishing of the fire in wind and solar energy buildings. In addition to this, one of the measures that can be taken for fire in wind and solar energy systems will be that planning and power plant authorities do not enter the area where the fire is located for a conventional power plant or similar facility (transformer, distribution center, etc.) in terms of fire safety.
Detection systems are integrated with gas (aerosol, fm200, co2, novec, argon, etc.) extinguishing systems and foam extinguishing systems solutions are available.
Spark extinguishing systems and quick response solutions are available.
