Characteristic Parameters of Stand-Alone Photovoltaic (PV) Systems
|Publication Date:||1 December 1992|
|ICS Code (Solar energy engineering):||27.160|
This International Standard defines the major electrical, mechanical and environmental parameters for the description and performance analysis of stand-alone photovoltaic systems. The parameters as listed are presented in a standard format for the purposes of procurement and performance analysis:
- measurement of short- and long-term on-site photovoltaic-system performance;
- comparison between on-site measured and projected performance, both extrapolated to standard test conditions (STC).
Specialized documents related to specific applications and/or to specific uses (designing, performance prediction and measurement) may be issued, if necessary.
The numbering of subclauses is arbitrary and may not be the same for specific data sheets.
