The Largest Photovoltaic Power Station in the World

The Largest Photovoltaic Power Station in the World


China has successfully built the world's largest photovoltaic power station with an area of up to 667 million square meters. How much power will it generate? It is said that the area of this power station is equivalent to that of Singapore, and it adopts special power generation and animal husbandry operation technology. The power generation capacity is equivalent to a medium-sized hydropower station. Solar and husbandry complement each other. Solar photovoltaic conversion power generation is applied to breeding and pastures. Use modern biotechnology, information technology, new materials and advanced equipment have been used to realize the integration and innovation of ecological farming and circular agricultural technology models, providing great technical support for the sustainable development of the farming industry.
 
At present, the photovoltaic power station developed in China adopts the international mainstream solar cell technology, that is, building a huge solar panel array, which directly generates electricity by receiving sunlight. The cost of solar cell power generation technology is low, and the output capacity is good. However, it occupies a considerable surface area. The power generation area of the world's largest solar power station built by China this time is close to the size of Singapore's urban area, and it can even be seen from space. What attracts other countries' attention is that China has used a unique solar and husbandry complementary technology in this project, which can be said to be the first in the world.

The so-called complementary technology of light and husbandry refers to raising sheep in the solar power station site. This is because the solar power station causes pain in the ass for many technicians. Many solar panels laid on the ground will reduce the evaporation of water on the surface, and to clean the solar cells, the staff will regularly spray water on the surface of the cells. The sprayed water mixes with the soil particles gotten from the surface of the solar cells and drips to the land below, which has become an excellent nourishment for weeds. Statistics show that the growth rate of weeds in solar power plants is more than twice that of other areas. It does not take long to grow to be higher than solar panels, thereby affecting the power generation efficiency of the battery. For this reason, the power station staff weed control must be carried out at regular intervals, either by spraying herbicides or by hiring manpower and equipment for manual weeding. Before that, an engineer in Gansu, China had a whim and decided to invite herdsmen to help. He asked herdsmen to drive their sheep to the solar power station, which easily solved the problem. The herdsmen's sheep liked the weeds that grew well in the solar power station, but were not interested in solar cells made of steel. They quickly eat the weeds that got in the way. 

Since then, China has begun to try to promote this technology on a large scale domestically, and has introduced this technology into solar power stations in many western regions, achieving good economic and technical benefits. Western countries learned experience from China, and the complementary technology of solar and animal husbandry has been practically used in many countries around the world, bringing great convenience to all countries. It can be said that China has made important contributions to the development of the global photovoltaic industry this time. In addition to the complementary technology of solar and animal husbandry, China's largest power station in the world also adopts many advanced technologies such as intelligent control of hydropower peak regulation. It can generate billions of kilowatt-hours of electricity every year, and now it has created great economic and social benefits for China. China is currently promoting this technology, and plans to build photovoltaic power stations with a larger area and better power generation capacity in the future, so that it can promote the development of Chinese society.
