Stand-alone PV system design : results using a new sizing approach.

Fragaki, A. and Markvart, T. (2008) 'Stand-alone PV system design : results using a new sizing approach.', Renewable energy., 33 (1). pp. 162-167.


A new sizing approach is applied in this paper to stand-alone PV systems design, which is based on systems configurations without shedding load. The investigation is based on a detailed study of the minimum storage requirement and an analysis of the sizing curves. The analysis reveals the importance of using daily series of measured solar radiation data instead of monthly average values. For high-reliability systems, it is important that these data series are as long as possible, while the configuration of large generator and small battery seems to deal better with the unpredictability of solar radiation.
