Title:Analysis of photovoltaic systems - 2000
Issue date:2000/03/31
Description:As part of the IEA PVPS programme, Task 2 is collecting and analyzing operational data of PV plants in various system techniques (grid connected, stand-alone systems, hybrid systems) spread all over the world. The objective of this Task is to provide PV experts and other target groups as well as other Tasks with suitable information on the operational performance, reliability and costs of PV system and subsystems. The IEA PVPS Task 2 database is designed for the normalized analysis and representation of the operational data from different PV applications. This report summarizes the analysis of more than 260 PV systems located world wide and integrated in the IEA PVPS Task 2 database, illustrates the operational behaviour of the systems by suitable graphics and presents the detailed results in normalized and standard form. The performance analysis allows comparisons between typical PV systems in different countries under different climatic conditions and systems of different load pattern. For more information see also the article in PV Power, Issue 14 Comparative analysis of PV systems' operation.
