∗ Both topological and behavioural models for the key components helping short– and long–term simulation.
∗ A model to compute the Loss of Load probability, considering year long daily radiation data.
∗ Sizing procedures for stand–alone and grid connected systems, based on energy balance and long–term simulations.
∗ Models for PV generators, batteries, converters and inverters.
∗ Coverage of numerous topics related to small PV systems, such as artificial light response, random irradiance and illuminance conditions
∗ A comprehensive range of solved examples
