Understanding Pv Module Performance: Further Validation of the Novel Loss Factors Model and Its Extension to Ac Arrays


The Loss Factors Model (LFM) has been introduced as a tool to better understand PV module performance under outdoor conditions. It is based on outdoor IV curves compared with its reference values to find six independent and normalized coefficients which when multiplied result in the DC Performance Factor. The Loss Factors Model thus allows us to easily… (More)
