Comparison of Statistical and Deterministic Smoothing Methods to Reduce the Uncertainty of Performance Loss Rate Estimates
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 ...
Estimating Hourly Beam and Diffuse Solar Radiation in an Alpine Valley: A Critical Assessment of Decomposition Models
Accurate solar radiation estimates in Alpine areas represent a challenging task, because of the strong variability arising from orographic effects and mountain weather phenomena. These factors, together with the scarcity ...
Are the spectroradiometers used by the PV community ready to accurately measure the classification of solar simulators in a broader wavelength range?
Latest trends in the photovoltaic sector see the use of innovative photovoltaic technologies with extended spectral responsivity ranging from 300 to 1200 nm for non-concentrating terrestrial applications, and to 1800 nm ...
Managing technical risks in PV investments: How to quantify the impact of risk mitigation measures for different PV project phases?
Project investment has been and still is a primary financial factor in enabling sustainable growth in photovoltaic (PV) installations. When assessing the investment worthiness of a PV project, different financial stakeholders ...
