PV Inverter Performance Characterization
Sandia National Laboratories
has hired Endecon to develop standardized test procedures for evaluating the performance of grid-connected PV inverters. The procedures are intended to verify or establish the parameters defining inverter
performance, including efficiency, maximum power point tracking accuracy, losses, operational limitations, etc., over a range of operating conditions. A report is being developed describing the test procedures, which
will eventually be submitted to IEEE for development as a standard.
