Estimating Subhourly Clipping Losses of Inverter and Plant From Performance Ratio Trends

ABSTRACT Most photovoltaic system production simulations are conventionally run using hourly weather datasets of satellite. Hourly simulations are sufficiently accurate to predict the majority of long-term system behaviour but cannot resolve high-frequency effects like inverter clipping caused by short-duration irradiance variability. Direct modelling of this sub hourly clipping error is only possible for the few […]
