Investigating Correlation of PV Generation Time Series

Investigating Correlation of PV Generation Time Series

There is a perceived risk that too much renewable energy generation could destabilise the electricity grid.  As a result it is becoming harder for new PV sites to connect to the grid.  We are interested in quantifying the impact on the electricity grid of solar PV generators, so that the grid operators can be confident ...

UK Photovoltaic Yield Estimate 2013

UK Photovoltaic Yield Estimate 2013

This briefing paper makes an estimate of PV generation from regions of the UK.  It is based upon small and medium systems, up to a size of 5MW peak generation.

It describes the typical generation for a system, as well as the total generation from all systems within each region.  It also explores inter-annual variability ...
