|Title:||Review of standards and quality assurance schemes for PV systems|
|Description:||This paper describes work undertaken as part of Task 3 (Stand-alone and Island Applications of Photovoltaic Power Systems) of the International Energy Agency’s Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme1. The long term objective of this work is to develop a series of recommendations which will be collated into a Recommended Practice Guide on Quality Assurance Schemes for stand alone PV and hybrid systems. The QA recommendations will be drawn up in consultation with the PV industry in each of the participating countries to encourage widespread acceptance. It is intended that the QA recommendations could be used for a further development (modification) of existing commissioning and acceptance tests as a draft for a new standard, possibly through PV-GAP. This paper describes the work to date on this programme and summarises the current status of international standards, guidelines and QA procedures for PV systems and components.|
