Power output for simple photovoltaic solar panel

Postby Hügel » Wed Mar 29, 2017 2:50 pm

Hello,

I am wondering how I should look at the power output values of the PV simulation within Design Builder.

Under standard configuration the power output in a simulation is equal to: the incident irradiance at a given moment minus the losses. And so, given a certain location/time/orientation/angle, the amount of power produced is simply a function of the efficiency and area of panels. Right?

So. say you have positioned a panel of 1m2, and 15% efficiency, you can just normalise this information. Say you have 20m2. the power output would be multiplied by 20?

Thank you in advance,

best regards,

Casper

Could you find out the solution for this?
