PV output simulation programs: • PVSS (1977)  SOLCEL (1977) PV • SOLSTOR (1979) PV, wind & storage • PVForm (1985) systems approach to PV, LCOE predictor, battery models too. • PVSIM (1996) better electrical description of PV • PVMOD (1998) empirical charactarization of modules •  PVDesignPro(MSES Corp. software 2004) • Sandia (SNL) model • Solar Advisory Model (SAM) by NREL and SNL • Hysim (1996) military PV + diesel + battery • Hybsim (2003) PV + diesel + battery + wind • 4-parameter one diode model (1989)  TRNSYS (1990) … • 5-parameter Array Performance Model (Wisconsin, CEC) • (DeSoto 2004, 2006)  PV F-chart (Wisconsin 1985, 2001) • PVWatts (v1, v2, IMBY tool, CSI EPBB Calculator) • PVSYST (Geneva, since 1995, current version 5.2) • RETScreen PV Project Model – economics and environmental impacts • PVSol (since 1998, v4 in 2009) • Polysun (Vela Solaris, Switzerland, 2009) economics include: financing, O&M • costs, incentives, energy prices, fuel cost savings and system value • INSEL • SolarPro (Japan 1997) For a Review see Sandia 8258

    29. (in)stability of the solar resource Daily totals of solar radiation were averaged with a 365-day wide boxcar filter to remove seasonal variations. The resulting 48-year history shows a 3% rms fluctuation and a range (max-min) that is 15% of the average. From the low irradiance in 1992 (after the Mt. Pinatubo eruption) until 1996, the annual irradiance increased 13% over 4 years. This 3 %/yr change in reference yield is one of the challenges for studying absolute degradation rates for PV systems.

    30. Insolation correlations across AZ

    31. More fluctuations at higher latitude

TEP Solar Test Yard Data vs. Models Project Objectives: Evaluate new PV system technologies & Compare to Traditional flat plate PV Monitor performance of grid-tied PV systems  see www.UAPV.org Report Energy Yields and Degradation Rates of PV systems  Big Spreads! Assess Models that Forecast PV generation.  PVsyst, Pvwatts, Sandia, CEC 5-p

    33. TEP Solar Test Yard Data vs. Models Concluions / Outlook: • Installed 5 new TEP systems and 5 new SOLON systems since 2009. • Presented degradation and partial-shade studies at PVSC 2010. • Working with test yards at NREL, Sandia, Stuttgart, Cyprus, SOLON (x3). • PV watts is usually within 10%. PVsyst is better but $800 & “Experts only” • Sandia claims to be within 1%, given weather data. • Goal: report new technology model coefficients for affiliates • Outreach / Education Agenda – see final slide Project Objectives: Evaluate new PV system technologies & Compare to Traditional flat plate PV Monitor performance of grid-tied PV systems  see www.UAPV.org Report Energy Yields and Degradation Rates of PV systems  Big Spreads! Assess Models that Forecast PV generation.  PVsyst, Pvwatts, Sandia, CEC 5-p.
