2 Components of a grid-connected residential PV system (net meter) The inverter contains: Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) MPPT and Circuitry to disconnect the PV from the grid in case of power loss (built within the inverter).
3 Interfacing with the utility Whenever the PV system delivers more power than the local demand, the electric meter runs backwards, building up a credit. When demand exceeds that supplied by the PV, the grid provides supplementary power. This arrangement is called net metering (the customer s monthly electric bill is only for that net amount of energy that the PV system is unable to supply).
4 Components of a grid-connected Residential PV system (with two meters) A two-meter system allows a feed-in tariff to provide separate rates for power generated by the PV system and power used by the customer.
5 Option of using micro-inverters An alternative approach is based on each PV module having its own small inverter (i.e., micro-inverter) mounted directly onto the backside of the panel. Now some panels come with built-in micro-inverters. These ac modules allow simple expansion of the system, one module at a time, as the needs or budget dictate.
6 Modular vs. centralized inverter For large grid-connected systems, strings of PV modules may be tied into inverters in a manner analogous to the individual inverter/module concept. By doing so, the system is modularized, making it easier to service portions of the system without taking the full array off line. Large, central inverter systems providing three-phase power to the grid are also an option.
7 Today s Grid-Tied PV Inverters Today s inverters are smart as they monitor the PV array, track the maximum power and operate at that point, sense the presence of the grid, synchronize to and inject a current in phase with the voltage, monitor the grid and disconnect in case of trouble (e.g., swings in voltage or frequency).

9 AC Rated Power The AC rated power of a grid-connected PV array is defined as P ac = P dc,stc x (Conversion Efficiency) where P dc,stc is the dc power of the array obtained by simply adding the individual module ratings under standard test conditions. The conversion efficiency accounts for inverter efficiency, dirty collectors, mismatched modules, and differences in ambient conditions, losses in DC and AC wiring, impact of partial shading, etc. Even in full sun, the impact of the above losses can easily de-rate the power output by 20% 30%.
10 Mismatched modules Not all modules coming off the very same production line will have exactly the same rated output. For example, some 100-W modules may produce 103 W and others 97 W. Production tolerances can reduce array output as well. What is the maximum power of the above modules if connected in series? (Ans: 340 W)
11 Impact of temperature An even more important factor that reduces module power below the rated value is cell temperature. In the field, the cells are likely to be much hotter than the 25 o C at which they are rated (STC) and we know that as temperature increases, power decreases. Other rating systems: The PVUSA test condition (PTC) is defined as 1-sun irradiance in the plane of the array, ambient temperature of 20 C, and a wind-speed of 1 m/s. California, for example, has chosen to use the PTC rating for its PV rebate program. What is the difference between PTC and NOTC? (Ans: different solar irradiances). What is the difference between PTC and STC? (Ans: different cell temperatures).
12 Accuracy using PTC The PTC rating assumes a nominal ambient of 20 o C, which is a pretty good average estimate for many locations in the United States. For Las Vegas, NV, we expect PTC to be accurate during for the months of March and November over-predict performance during the months of April- October, under-predict during December-February.
13 Inverter efficiency There is power loss in the inverter itself, which varies depending on the power flow.
14 Derating due to Shading ground cover ratio (GCR) GCR = ratio of area of PV to total ground area. Industry practice: optimize use of space for a 2.5% loss this corresponds to a shading derate factor of

19 Peak-Hours Approach to Estimating PV Performance Predicting performance is a matter of combining the characteristics of the PV system (including the inverter) with local insolation and temperature data. Since 1-sun of insolation is defined as 1 kw/m 2, we can think of an insolation of say 5.6 kwh/m 2 /day as being the same as 5.6 h/day of 1-sun, or 5.6 peak sun hours (PSH). So, if we know the ac power delivered by an array under 1- sun insolation (P ac ), and assume that the system efficiency remains constant, then the daily energy collected would be equal to Energy (kwh/day) = P ac (kw) (PSH)
20 Examples: Annual Energy Using the Peak-Sun-Hours Example 1: Estimate the annual energy delivered by the 1-kW (dc, STC) array described in the previous example if it located in Las Vegas, NV, is south-facing, and has a tilt angle L Use an overall derating factor of 72%. Answer: PSH = 6.4 (see Appendix E). De-rated ac power output 1kW x.72 = 0.72 kw. Annual Energy = 0.72 kw 6.4h/day 365 day/yr = 1,682 kwh Problem 6.1: Ans: a. b.
21 Examples: Problem 6.2: Ans: a).. b).. c)..
22 Capacity Factor (CF) Capacity Factor for grid-connected PV systems: Example: what is the capacity factor of a fixed PV array in Las Vegas, NV (south facing with tilt = latitude)? (Ans: 6.4/24 = 0.27)
23 System Sizing Practical Design Considerations System sizing (First Cut): How many kwh/year are required? How many peak watts of dc PV power are needed to provide that amount? How much area will that system require? Case of house in Fresno, CA: Desire a rooftop PV array that will annually displace all of the 3600 kwh/yr of electricity that the home uses. How many kw (dc, STC) of panels will be required and what area will be needed? Make assumptions as needed. Answer: For Fresno, CA (Appendix G): 5.7 kwh/m 2 /day of annual insolation for L-15, P ac = 3600/(5.7x365) = 1.73 kw Assume derating factor of 75% P dc,stc = 1.73/.75 = 2.3 kw Assume collector efficiency of 12.5% Area = 2.3/0.125 = 18.4 m 2
24 Annual Energy delivered by 1 kw (dc, STC) PV array
25 Area required to deliver 1 MWh/year (with dc-to-ac derating of 75%)
26 Panel & Inverter Selection
27 Panel & Inverter Selection Number of modules needed: 2300/158 = 14.6 (14-15 panels) Number of panels per string: 2 panels result in a rated voltage of 46.4 V 3 panels result in a rated voltage of 69.6 V Which of these falls nicely in the MPPT range of the inverter? Ans: 3 Therefore using 15 panels (5 parallel strings each with 3 panels) is a nice fit. Check that the maximum Voc does not exceed the highest DC voltage of the inverter: 86.7 V < 120 V Check the case for the coldest temperature (recall that Voc increases a colder temperatures) The National Electrical Code (NEC) restricts all voltages in family dwellings to not more than 600 V.
28 Roof area, energy production and fuses Roof area: 15 x 1.29 x 0.99 = 19.1 m 2 Rated Power (dc, STC): 15 x 158 = 2,370 W Rated AC Power (assuming de-rating of 75%): 2.37x.75 = kw Expected annual energy production: x 5.7 x 365 = 3,698 kwh/year goal is met. Combiner fuse > 1.56 (per NEC) x 7.58 = 11.8 A 12 A DC Disconnect fuse > 11.8 x 5 = 59.2 A 60 A AC Disconnect fuse > 1.25 (per NEC) x (2500/240) =13 A 15 A
29 Examples Problem 6.6: Ans:..
30 Grid-connected PV System Economics: System Tradeoffs To illustrate the decision between system options, consider the trade-off between the benefits of higher irradiance with a tracking mount compared to a simple fixed, roof mount. Example: A PV system for a house in Boulder, CO, is to be designed to deliver about 4 MWh/yr. Given the following costs, decide whether to recommend a fixed array at tilt L-15 or a single-axis tracker. Assume 12% efficient PVs and a 0.75 dc-to-ac efficiency factor.
31 Example (cont.) 1-axis tracker Average insolation (see Appendix G): PSH = 7.2 kwh/m2/day Pdc,STC = 4000/(.75x.72x365) = 2.03 kw Area needed: 2.03/.12 = 16.9 m 2 Fixed array Average insolation (see Appendix G): PSH = 5.4 kwh/m2/day Pdc,STC = 4000/(.75x7.2x365) = 2.71 kw There might some advantage to using the tracker, but only a more careful analysis (including the reliability of the tracking system) could affirm the validity of this conclusion.
32 Dollar-per-peak-watt ambiguity It is common practice to describe installed costs in dollars per watt of peak power. There are two ambiguities with the $/W indicator: One is whether the watts are based on dc power from the PVs or ac power from the inverter. The other is whether or not a tracker has been used. In the previous example, even though the tracker delivers the same kwh/yr and it is cheaper than the fixed-tilt array, it appears to have a higher cost when expressed as $/Wdc or $/Wac. When a PV system uses tracking, an Energy Production Factor (EPF) must be included in order to make the $/W descriptor comparable to that of a fixed array.
33 Grid-connected PV System Economics: Economic Viability Whether the system is economically viable or not depends on many factors: the initial cost of the system, the amount of energy it will deliver each year. the price of the energy displaced by the system, whether there are any tax credits or other economic incentives, how the system is to be paid for. A detailed economic analysis will include: estimates of operation and maintenance costs; future costs of utility electricity; loan terms and income tax implications if the money is to be borrowed, or personal discount rates if the owner purchases it outright; system lifetime; costs or residual value when the system is ultimately removed.
34 Average installed cost of residential PVs $1.55/Wdc $1.75/Wdc $0.70/Wdc Total $4/Wdc 2000 prices, 2012 prices
35 Amortizing cost To estimate the cost of electricity generated by a PV system, consider a loan to pay for the system and then using annual payments divided by annual kwh delivered to give /kwh. If an amount of money, or principal, P ($), is borrowed over a period of n (years) at an interest rate of i (decimal fraction/yr), then the annual loan payments, A($/yr), is expressed in terms of the Capital Recovery Factor (CRF) as where
36 Example The tracking PV system of the previous example costs $16,850 to deliver 4,000 kwh/yr. If the system is paid for with a 6%, 30- year loan, what would be the cost of electricity? Answer: But the interest on such loans are tax deductible. The tax benefit that results depends on the marginal tax bracket (MTB) of the homeowner. Furthermore, this means that the tax benefit of interest payments varies from year to year.
37 Example (cont.) For example, in the first year, interest is owed on the entire amount borrowed and the tax benefit is Revisit the previous example: If the homeowner is in the 30.5% marginal tax bracket, what is the cost of PV energy in the first year? Answer:
38 Example (cont.) First-year cost of electricity with $/Wdc (STC) as the parameter. (Assumptions: 6%, 30-yr loan, MTB = 0.305, dc-ac conversion =75%) Some states have sizable rebates. Nevada, for example, has a rebate program funded by utility ratepayers that offers a $2.50/Wac (as of 2012).
39 New Example: Financing a PV system A 3-kWac PV system is predicted to deliver 6000 kwh/yr to a house that currently pays $0.12/kWh for electricity. The system, which costs $27,000, is eligible for a rebate of $4.50/Wac. If the balance is paid for with a 6%, 30-year loan and the owner is in the 37% tax bracket (combined state and federal), what is the cost of PV electricity in the first year and what would be the net economic benefit in the first year? Ans: Net cost after rebate: (4.5x3000) = $13,500 Annual loan: x13500 = $ Tax savings: 0.06x13500x0.37 = $ Cost of electricity from the PV system: ( )/6000 = $0.1135/kWh Net economic benefit: 6000x( )=$39/yr
