The Following information is important for a Solar PV System:
1) Maintenance of PV Module: Dust, dirt, bird shit should be cleaned regularly from the panel surface. It is advisable to clean the panels at least once a month and twice a month for dusty areas.
2)Maintenance of Battery: It is advisable to do visual inspection for electrolyte leakage, cracks in batteries, corrosion at battery terminals etc. The corrosion at battery terminal is seen a white coating around it. The liquid level should not be more than 0.5 inches lower than the top of the battery.
3) Tilt Angle: Due to the geographic location of Nepal, it is required to tilt the solar panels 30˚ from the horizontal surface to get maximum performance

Note1: The scientific equations used for calculating temperature effect on the PV modules have demonstrated in literature to provide optimal results for poly/mono-crystalline based modules, but no reference for thin film modules is purveyed.
Note2: The app calculates the theoretical maximum for installations with solar tracking system, considering that the modules are always oriented towards the sun. Accordingly, the real production for fixed installations will always be smaller than the production estimated by the app.
Languages supported: English, French, German, Spanish and Catalan.
The usage of Solar Energy has increased recently, due to its advantages, mainly because it is a clean renewable source of energy, which its availability makes it ideal for local production of electric power.
The position of a PV panel affects its power generation. Thus, the panels should be positioned optimally for maximum efficiency.
THIS TOOL uses GPS to determine your location and the time of the day, than calculate the azimuth and the elevation of the sun. Having the sun's position calculated, your smartphone will guide you and show you how to position your panel for optimal solar energy generation.
3 operational modes available:
★ Now - The best position of the panel at the current time.
★ Year - The best position of the panel through the whole year.
★ Custom - You may choose the period for optimal power generation.
For best result, place your smartphone in a vertical position on your solar cell surface. The arrows pointing left and right indicate the pan rotation, while the up and down arrows suggest the tilt rotation. Note that the color of the arrows will change from red to green as you get closer to the desired location. We suggest to make gentle movements while the arrows are green until they disappear. When the light bulb turns on, you're on the spot! Now you can remove your smartphone from the panel, and get the most of your solar panel.

You can vary the size of system, location, material, inverter efficiency, module orientation and tilt angle, etc, to see how your system output changes.
PV Calculator is an application, designed for PV / Solar collector planners, installers or who are interested in this technology, so they can quickly calculate what kind of system is required at the given place.
The App will go through the calculation in multiple stages.
If you want to have a PV system, first you have to give your energy consumption per year or per month. The app can calculate, related to coordinates and irradiation, your required size of PV system.
After you’ve chosen the system type and gave the datas, then you can see the location, where you are. Your device will use the GPS to give the exact location.
After it, on the next screen is one of the most important ones, because it uses data like the angle and direction of your roof, so we can calculate with the parameters of your house. Tilt and turn your device to get your roof’s parameters.
At the end of the App, a survey report can be viewed with system details. Once this report is complete, you will get the required system’s size, suggested inventories for the system. If you don’t have enough space for the calculated system or can't afford it, then you can see a smaller systems at this screen. In case of collectors, you will get two recommended system, such as flat plate and evacuated tube.
Reports can also be emailed as a pdf file to your own email account with more details about the chosen system.
Please rate this App if you like it.
It supports both analog mode and digital mode,

Satellite Director replaces all of that. See tips to success below !!!
WARNING: The only sensor you need is the compass. Unfortunatly you have to calibrate the compass before using it. Compare your phone's compass with a real compass !!
Metal covers/cases or covers/cases with metal/magnetic closure will influence/disrupt the compass of your phone or tablet. Do not use these covers !! The compass of your phone can also get inaccurate because it is affected by other electro - magnetic fields or because it is weakened by age. Calibrating the compass may not help anymore.
PRECISION DEPENDS ON THE QUALITY OF YOUR PHONES HARDWARE.
Warning: If you use Cyanogenmod / Cymod then you may run into Android compatibility issues and the app may not work. You should then complain to Cyanogenmod / Cymod and not to me.
This app is add-free !
Help me to continue the work on this app and watch some of my videos on Youtube. The advertising in the videos provides some required money (houres of work, phones to test on, satellite equipment, etc.).
How does it work ?
Just enable the GPS in your phone or enter your GPS location, select the desired TV satellite and point your phone to the sky to target (find) the TV satellite. You have found the satellite when the white ball is in the white circle and the cyan ball is in the cyan circle. Align, in azimuth, the offset arm of the satellite dish to the cyan arrow on the phones display and the satellite dish is aligned in azimuth with the satellite.
Selectable audio tone, camera preview, continuous mode (no pause), color pickers or a user defined satellite position may make it easier for you to find the desired TV satellite. The satellite list contains 280 satellites.
Optional you can take a photo (resized)/screenshot by touching on the director tab. The photo/screenshot is ONLY stored on the phones memory card.
Optional: you can get an indication when you are to close to iron (dish/pole) in the form of an green/yellow/red bar.
Satellite positions are derived from Agi's database. Some positions may seem not accurate (example: Hispasat 30°w is at 29.96°w in the satellite list) but they are very accurate.
New phones with Android 4: in case of a wrong compass reading the "Settings" screen has options to correct the compass readings !!!!
Previous versions are available from my website.
If you have any questions, requests or problems PLEASE write an email.

3 tips to success:
1- do NOT go to close to the iron dish, iron lnb arm or iron pole (keep at least 30 cm distance)
2- calibrate the compass of the phone by waving it in a figure 8 before you start
3- optional: calibrate the compass of the phone by rolling your phone along its length axis about 2-3 turns (works on some phones)
The compass accuracy depends on the performance of your device. If it works perfectly, this means your sensors are perfect, too. If it is inaccurate, please check that you aren't being affected by a magnetic field and the sensors become weakened by age.
Practical application includes:
- A compass, which at the same time we can see that we azimuth from north.
- A bubble level to level based, or any surface you need.
- A detailed weather report, which includes pressure and humidity, to know what conditions are going to work.
