Descripción
This paper presents the features, models, and calculation procedures implemented in an open-source simulation tool of grid-connected PV systems, which is being developed under the support of a European project. Simulations may be carried out with different time series of input data coming from the monitoring of PV systems, ground-based weather stations, satellite measurements or popular databases. Besides, the tool may also generate the required time series starting from monthly averages of irradiance and ambient temperature values. Models of components are mainly based on standard information, provided by manufacturers or promoters, which may be verified experimentally by on-site quality control testing procedures. Among other simulation options, it is possible to select between three static PV generators (ground, roof or façade) or six trackers (with/without backtracking), and to carry out different types of analysis (sweep, parametric, ensembles, etc.). The tool provides, among other simulation results, the energy yield, the analysis and breakdown of energy losses, and the estimations of financial returns adapted to the legal and financial frameworks of each European country. Besides, educational facilities will be developed and integrated in the tool, not only devoted to learn how to use the software, but also to train the users on the best design PV systems practices.
