PV System Energy Evaluation Method (Presentation): NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory)

Research output: NRELPresentation


This presentation describes a comparison of the 'predicted' energy (based on historical weather data) with the 'expected' energy (based on the measured weather data) to determine whether a PV system is performing as modeled in order to verify the accuracy of a model. A key factor in defining this energy test is determining the test boundary so that weather variations are not inadvertentlyincluded in what is considered to be PV system performance.
