IEEE Recommended Practice for Testing the Performance of Stand-Alone Photovoltaic Systems
|Publication Date:||11 September 2003|
The test methods and procedures included in this recommended practice cover stand-alone PV systems. Procedures provided are for conducting performance testing of individual components and complete systems. The methodology includes testing the system outdoors in prevailing conditions and indoors under simulated conditions.
This recommended practice provides test methods and procedures for determining stand-alone PV system performance and conducting design verification. Test procedures provided in this recommended practice are intended to assist designers, manufacturers, system integrators, users, and laboratories in conducting these performance tests.
