This work consists of a study focusing on the feasibility of using photovoltaic panels to produce the electricity required by plant operations at a chemical treatment plant belonging to an industrial company. Using available statistical data, it provides estimates relative to the amount of solar radiation received by the Eskisehir region, a large proportion of which is exposed to sunlight every day. The study reveals in detail the operating periods and power of the pumps used to pump the wastewater and the chemicals, and performs daily and instantaneous measurements of the power used at the plant over a one week time period. Following these evaluations, the study determines the instantaneous maximum power used by the system and provides the calculations necessary for photovoltaic panels and equipment.
