Performance Evaluation of a 1.5-kWdc a-Si PV Array Using the PVUSA Power Rating Method at NREL's Outdoor Test Facility

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

As part of the work conducted in the PV Systems Reliability and Performance R&D Task, a 1.5-kWdc photovoltaic (PV) array consisting of 36 Solarex MST-43MV dual-junction a-Si modules was installed and its performance monitored for almost six years (September 1999 through May 2005) at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) Outdoor Test Facility (OTF). This paper describes the system andits performance based on the PV for Utility-Scale Applications (PVUSA) power rating method.
