After his studies in energy engineering, Cyril has been working with Franz Baumgartner in PV system research at the Institute of Energy Systems and Fluid-Engineering since 2019. Main focus of his research is laboratory testing of PV system components, where he examines the efficiency of PV inverters, the performance of module-level power electronics and transients of battery systems. His activities further include the simulation of PV performance in shaded conditions and heat pump - PV control strategies.
11:55 am - 12:15 pm
Performance indicators for complex PV new systems have to consider their multiple-usage benefits. These PV systems are built to produce energy on the one hand and on the other hand to provide additional yield or benefits, economically or for instance regarding social acceptance of PV system installations. Thus, performance indicators besides energy yield related figures are relevant for rating a certain PV installation. This session attempts to provide a collection of new performance characterization methods for new PV system designs as a reference. New methods are described and explained by laboratory tests up to case studies. The presentations will cover the outcomes of the work carried out by IEA PVPS Task 13 experts to provide well-founded and comparable key figures in order to enable new PV system designs to move faster into new fields of PV applications.
This session is jointly organized by Intersolar and IEA PVPS Task 13.
