Abstract

This paper presents a description of an open-source simulation tool (features, models and calculation procedures) that has been developed under the support of the European project called PVCROPS. The main advantage of this tool is that it uses as input just parameters guaranteed by the manufacturers of the different components of a PV plant. This way, it can be used in contractual frameworks to establish the expected energy yield of a PV plant, to check the actual performance of the PV plant with quality contractual procedures linked to SISIFO, and to assign responsibilities in the case of underperformance. The tool provides, among other simulation results, the energy yield, the analysis and breakdown of energy losses, and financial analysis. Furthermore the software can generate a technical report with the results obtained in the simulation.
