Solar Radiation Intermittency And PV System Performance

Almost all calculations involving solar radiation on the earth’s surface are currently carried out with integrated radiation values, such as hourly values obtained from ground-based measurements or satellite observations. Although it has been noted that using such radiation averages ignores much of the intermittency induced by clouds (Suehrcke & McCormick, 1988), the hourly calculation approach continues to be used, including for performance prediction of photovoltaic (PV) systems. McCormick & Suehrcke (2018) point out that the use of integrated data (e.g....
