IEC 61724 PDF
The standard for PV system performance monitoring has been revised. The new version, released February , defines “accuracy classes”. Abstract — After a PV system is installed, periodic analysis is necessary to track how measured performance meets expectations. IEC outlines methods . The IEC standard for PV system performance monitoring has been revised. This is relevant for system owners, O&M managers.

This memo offers comments on consequences of the new standard concerning the selection of pyranometers. For pyranometers, the following costs are associated with Class A: It is too costly to obtain a Class A status: The standard contains detailed specifications at monitoring system component level.
Uec does so by establishing accuracy classes for monitoring systems. Photovoltaic system performance monitoring — Guidelines for measurement, data exchange and analysis —dates from The standard for PV system performance monitoring has been revised. The standard also defines requirements for measurement of module- and air temperature, wind speed and direction, soiling ratio, and AC and Jec current and voltage.
IEC what’s it all about? | PV Tech
The following tables offer an overview of the main elements of the IEC monitoring classification system, its requirements for solar radiation measurement and which pyranometers comply in which accuracy class.
A survey showed that the main reason for most companies not to aim for a Class A status for IEC, is the cost-benefit analysis they made. In conformity declarations, providers must state the 16724 class of the measurement. Class Iwc medium accuracy. You should at least do all of the below: The solution with true air ventilation, not air circulation.
The classes A, B and C are site requirements; all individual onsite measurement instruments have to be Class A, in order to obtain a Class A status of the site. Emerainville – France T: It outlines equipment, methods, and terminology for performance monitoring and analysis of photovoltaic PV systems. Once every 2 years. Class A high accuracy.
It is too costly to obtain a Class A status:. It also defines cleaning and calibration intervals for pyranometers.
The IEC standard for PV monitoring systems. A quick explanation. | Hukseflux
Figure 1 frost and dew deposition: It 617724 for each class of monitoring system the pyranometer class that must be used, 617244 required instrument ventilation and heating, azimuth and tilt angle accuracy. To achieve this, dew, frost, soiling and instrument deposition as such should be prevented, and customers have to do good product maintenance. It is no use having only one or a few instruments Class A. Why heating and ventilation? There are two reasons for the extra steps prescribed by IEC to comply with an optimal Class A: This significantly increases the reliability of the measured data.
Class A means great 617224 for the maintenance of your pyranometers A survey showed that the main reason for most companies not to aim for a Class A status for IEC, is the cost-benefit analysis they made. The first edition of IEC The version of the standard recognises that the solar irradiance measurement is one of the weakest links in the measurement chain.
Both standards define Class A, B and C but with a different meaning. Pyranometer domes are made of glass.
IEC 61724-1: what’s it all about?
It now has been updated. Heating and ventilation of solar radiation sensors keeps the glass temperature above dewpoint and free from dew and frost deposition. Introduction The first edition of IEC The new scope not only defines the measuring system components and procedures as in the versionbut also aims to keep measurement errors within specified limits.
