About | STELR Solar
STELR Solar is an additional part of this program that allows students to explore the impact and operation of solar panels installed on school roofs throughout Australia through an interactive website. Data is collected from solar panel systems every five minutes (under normal circumstances) and uploaded to this site, where it is processed and displayed. Students can also download the raw data to perform their own analysis and exploration of the data. STELR Solar was developed by IBM Research, Australia.

Normalising the data divides all the values by the corresponding solar array's capacity, so that you can compare the efficiency of differently-sized systems. For example, imagine you had the following normal (or unnormalised) data for two schools:. Looking at the power and energy values, you might think that both solar installations are being equally efficient, however, if we normalise the data, we can see a different story:. Normalised Cumulative Energy for Day (kWh / kW). Uarr; Return to top. A standar...
