Photovoltaic System Performance Monitoring - Guidelines for Measurement, Data Exchange and Analysis
|Publication Date:||1 April 1998|
|ICS Code (Wind turbine energy systems):||27.180|
This International Standard recommends procedures for the monitoring of energy-related PV system characteristics such as in-plane irradiance, array output, storage input and output and power conditioner input and output; and for the exchange and analysis of monitored data. The purpose of these procedures is to assess the overall performance of PV systems configured as stand-alone or utility grid-connected, or as hybridised with non-PV power sources such as engine generators and wind turbines. This standard may not be applicable to small stand-alone systems due to the relatively high cost of the measurement equipment.
