|Title:||Guidelines for Monitoring Stand-Alone Photovoltaic Systems: Methodology and Equipment|
|Description:||The Guidelines provide a reference manual in which the information is organised so that a user is able to focus on a specific performance aspect, avoiding irrelevant data collection. The Guidelines starts with a common technical approach but is adapted to the different point of views. To achieve this, the performance parameters have been organized into customized data sets designed to cover the spectrum of likely monitoring needs. There is a set of general parameters that provide the site information that is universal for all case studies. Thereafter, purpose specific sets include: Quality assurance parameters; Commercial evaluation parameters; Scientific evaluation of system performance; Battery performance parameters; Appliance performance parameters; User-satisfaction and adaptation to technology.|
