Photovoltaic (PV) module temperature predictions are crucial to accurately assess the efficiency of PV installations. In this study we focus on the cooling effect of wind on PV cell temperature. We show that for most of the technologies installed at a PV test facility in Bolzano (Italy), models including wind data predict PV cell temperature better than(More)
In order to monitor the correct operation and evaluate the energetic performance of a photovoltaic (PV) power plant, as well as to be able to compare with other PV installations, operational monitoring with appropriate measurement accuracy is necessary. Mainly due to economic reasons, in the majority of cases PV electrical parameters are measured directly(More)
With the large increase of installed photovoltaic (PV) capacity introduced in the energy system, one aspect that becomes increasingly important is the long-term reliability of the energy output and, thus, the estimation of the performance loss rate (PLR) for the different technologies on the market. Reliable performance metrics and statistical methods are(More)
