FSEC Procedure for Testing Stand-Alone Photovoltaic Systems
This procedure is based on IEEE P1526/D1, Draft Recommended Practice for Testing the Performance of Stand-Alone Photovoltaic Systems. The system performance is based upon how well it can charge the battery. The usable battery capacity is measured by charging and discharging the battery three separate times. The tests are designed to test the overall system performance in the span of about one month.
