PR Calculation


Recommended Posts

  • 2 years later...

Frequently I need to know what is the "Perfomance Ratio P90", as well the P90 of Global Incident irradiation over the collector plane.

Does the PVsyst evaluate these values automatically in any version?

What formula/equation could be used in the case of "Perfomance Ratio P90"?

Anything like PR_P90 = E_Grid_P90 / (Glob_Inc_P90 * Pnom) ???

There are two formulas mentioned in PVsyst . 

1) PR = E_Grid / (GlobInc * Pnom) 

2) PR (corr) = E_Grid / ( PNomPV * Σ hours ( GlobInc / GRef * (1 + muPmpp * (Tarray - TArrayAver) ) )

I can see in the report PR is calculated based on the first formula and in the report losses due to temperature are already taken into account . > My question is why the second formula is there , Is it used while calculating PR ( If not then can it be used and  based on it PR be seen on PVSYST report)

> In the PVsyst forum it's mentioned " In PVsyst the weather-corrected result variable is named PRTemp. You can get it on the report by using "Settings > Report preferences" in the Report editing menu." Could you please explain in steps where i can find report editing menu .
