SIGMA: Automation platform for solar collector assembly lines in real time and estimation of rejects


Projects co-financed by the CDTI

Renewable Power


The SIGMA project aims to develop a computer platform that will allow automation of the processing and interpretation of large volumes of information during the assembly process of the collectors (SCE) of parabolic trough solar thermal plants, so as to allow both correct prior estimation of rejects on the assembly lines and facilitate efficient decision-making during the assembly phase itself of the SCE that make up the solar field based on monitoring of the information, as well as the subsequent obtaining of conclusions on the level of efficiency achieved and deviations from the initial planning.
