The standard for PV system performance monitoring has been revised. The new version, released February , defines “accuracy classes”. Abstract — After a PV system is installed, periodic analysis is necessary to track how measured performance meets expectations. IEC outlines methods . The IEC standard for PV system performance monitoring has been revised. This is relevant for system owners, O&M managers.

To achieve this, dew, frost, soiling and instrument deposition as such should be prevented, and customers have to do good product maintenance.
IEC 61724-1: what’s it all about?
The version of the standard recognises that the solar irradiance measurement is one of the weakest links in the measurement chain. Pyranometer domes are made of glass. For pyranometers, the following costs are associated with Class A: Introduction The first edition of IEC This significantly increases the reliability of the measured data. It outlines equipment, methods, and terminology for performance monitoring and analysis of photovoltaic PV systems.
Why heating and ventilation? Class B medium accuracy.
You should at least do all of the below: Delft – The Netherlands T: The new version of the standard is fundamentally different from the version. Once every 2 years. Heating and ventilation of solar 617224 sensors keeps the glass temperature above dewpoint and free from dew and frost deposition.

There are two reasons for the extra steps prescribed by IEC to comply with an optimal Class A: This memo offers comments on consequences of the new standard concerning the selection of pyranometers. It is no use having only one or a few instruments Class A. It is too costly to obtain a Class A status:. Class C jec accuracy.
At least once per week. A survey showed that the main reason for most companies not to aim for a Class A status for IEC, is the cost-benefit analysis they made. Figure 1 frost and dew deposition: Class A means great care for the maintenance of ied pyranometers A 661724 showed that the main reason for most companies not to aim for a Class A status for IEC, is the cost-benefit analysis they made.
When facing the sky on a clear night, glass temperature tends to go below dewpoint, so that water condenses on the dome. It specifies for each class of monitoring system the pyranometer class that must be used, including required instrument ventilation and heating, azimuth and tilt 67124 accuracy.
It addresses sensors, installation, and accuracy for monitoring equipment in addition to uec parameter data acquisition and quality checks, calculated parameters, and performance metrics. It now has been updated.
The standard contains detailed specifications at monitoring system component level. The standard for PV system performance monitoring has been revised. In conformity declarations, providers must state the accuracy class of the measurement.

Both standards define Class A, B and C but with a different meaning. The new scope not only defines the measuring system components and procedures as in the versionbut also aims to keep measurement errors within specified limits. It does so by establishing accuracy classes for monitoring systems. The standard also defines requirements for measurement of module- and air temperature, wind speed and direction, soiling ratio, and AC and DC current and voltage.
It is too costly to obtain a Class A status: The new standard includes: The first edition of IEC You should eic least do all of the below:.
The following tables offer an overview of the main elements of the IEC monitoring classification system, its requirements for solar radiation measurement and which pyranometers comply in which accuracy class.
The solution with true air ventilation, not air circulation. Eic shows requirements for solar radiation measurements and which pyranometers comply. The class is not only determined by the hardware that is used, but also by quality checks and measurement procedures.
