Energy utilized per unit of time.
MPP (Maximum Power Point)admin
This term refers to the point at which performance is at its highest.
MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking)admin
For optimum yield of module performance, the power inverter or solar charge controller must continuously adjust the voltage (V) so that the modules attain their MPP.
PR (Performance Ratio)admin
This is crucial for determining performance of PV power systems. The ratios of the maximum possible output and the achieved output are determined and compared.
The term used to refer to the direct conversion of light into electric energy.
This is the sum of all modules of a PV plant.
This is a single module of a solar generator which produces direct current (dc) with the help of photovoltaic effects.
Solar Cylinder (Storage)admin
In order to store excess power from own solar plant, solar cylinders can be built. At the moment, solar cylinder possibilities are lead and lithium batteries. By using a solar cylinder, the autonomy of a household can be maximized to 100% depending on size.
These are the smallest energy producing components of a PV system. They are mostly identified by their rectangular shape and shimmering black or blue color.
STC (Standard Test Conditions)admin
Standard Test Conditions create uniform test conditions which make it possible to carry out uniform comparisons of photovoltaic modules under laboratory conditions. These conditions are: irradiation: 1000W/m2, cell temperature: 25°C, AM (air mass): 1.5 (Europe).
