The 2nd PV Performance Modeling Workshop is going to be held May 1-2 in Santa Clara, CA as part of the 2013 PV Systems Symposium being sponsored by Sandia National Laboratories and Electrical Power Research Institute. Registration is available here. Draft agenda is also available for download.
The wide variety of PV system technologies and designs, site conditions, and operations strategies means that complex PV system performance models are needed to represent PV plant performance. While PV component and system costs are rapidly falling, the upfront costs of PV (before any energy is generated) remain high. Sandia National Laboratories’ scientists, Joshua Stein…Details
