smeredith Posted April 5 Share Posted April 5 I ran a simulation and noticed that there are certain hours where the inverter is flagged as offline and the power loss is assigned to the "IL_Pmin" category, which is supposed to be because array power is below the threshold of the inverter. However in my case, for the hours that are lost due to inverter threshold, the input power is actually 5-6x the inverter threshold. This is sort of a "double whammy", because not only are those lost production hours, but there is also nighttime inverter loss associated with these hours. See the below example, in which an inverter with a 2500 W (2.5 kW) threshold is losing power. For reference, just a single central inverter (2200 kW) is being used for this project. Power units are in kW. Can someone explain why this is happening? The result is a lower yield than I would expect. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
