arossi77 Posted October 30, 2014 Share Posted October 30, 2014 Hello,I'm facing the situation where the PV Arrays are installed in a wavy terrain (refer to attached picture). Azimuth is constant. I'd like to run simulation to evaluate the benefit of the multi-MPPT operation against the single-MPPT operation in order to select the proper DC-side inverter configuration. I guess I should consider the same installation conditions (same azimuth and tilt) with different IAM values, but how to evaluate the bo factor? To compare the multi-MPPT operation with the single-MPPT operation, I could set up the simulation defining multiple subsystems each one with its own bo factor (how to calculate it basing on the mechanical positioning of the modules?) and another simulation defining a single subsystem with a different (higher) bo factor (how to "average" the bo factors to define the single-MPPT simulation value for bo?).Any help will be highly appreciated!!!Best regards, AR Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
