Given the increasing importance of solar power and the efforts to optimize large power plants, the effect of subsystems on levelized cost of energy (LCOE) is being examined in increasing detail. For the photovoltaic (PV) inverter, which is one of the most complicated elements in a PV system, reliability has been an important issue. There are many ways to(More)
In the design of large solar installations, accurate prediction of subsystem availability is essential to understanding energy harvest and, consequently, financial rates of return for the energy producer or user. However, making accurate reliability predictions is difficult for a number of reasons, including variations in environmental conditions,(More)
