I have been trying to publish new pages in the modeling steps nearly every day. Some of the new pages include: reflective loss models, the Sandia Module IV model, diffuse radiation models, and some pages on irradiance components, AOI, etc. Check back frequently for updates. Please feel free to send me any content you want…Details
I’d like to put out a call for standard functions which would be nice to include in the PV_LIB MATLAB toolbox. Matt Reno alerted me to some possible alternatives to the DISC model which might be a good fit. Is Amanda Luketa’s transient temperature model a good choice, is it sufficiently complete? With a little help from Matt Reno,…Details
Sandia modeling team was featured in a Photon article entitled: Designing a Better Crystal Ball in the April 2012 issue. It described research at Sandia that is developing methods to estimate high frequency (e.g., 1-min) power output from utility-scale plants using a single irradiance sensor.
There will be a special oral session (details below) at this years IEEE PVSC in Austin devoted to the PV Performance Modeling Collaborative. I hope to see many of you at the meeting. I plan to give a preview of our new website during the first presentation of the session! Area 9 Area 9: Modules…Details
