Title: (EN) ESTIMATION OF SHADING LOSSES FOR PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS FROM MEASURED AND MODELED INPUTS
Abstract:
(EN)

The present invention provides methods and systems to estimate energy losses due to shading in PV systems from data including the measured energy and power produced over the lifetime of the system, the system size and configuration data, the weather conditions (including irradiance, ambient & panel temperature, and wind conditions) over the lifetime of the system, and derived meteorological condition information (e.g., decomposed irradiance values at any time).
