Even if sizing estimates have been performed manually, the results should be confirmed with computer simulations. Some of the more popular simulations are PV Sol, PVWatts and SAM (Solar Advisor Model). PVWatts In the US, a frequently used program is PVWatts, a computer simulation developed by NREL for no-storage grid-connected applications. The simulation is widely used throughout the US to predict the performance of all types of photovoltaic technology. PVWatts is available in two versions; Version 1 is the easiest to use.

It is the preferred simulation model outside the US, particularly in the EU. PV Sol has a number of advanced capabilities, including the ability to consider parameters specific to each of the different PV technologies, including thin PVWatts Version 1 uses insolation and other environmental data derived from NREL’s NSRDB.

Minimizing the Effects of Wind Loading Wind loading is one of the more serious issues for a PV designer. COM solar power > e-book > building-mounted photovoltaics Building-mounted PV Systems Large ground-mounted collectors are vulnerable to dynamic loading caused by rapid changes in wind speed and direction, which can have a significant effect on array performance and can threaten collector survival. Rapid gusts of wind peaking at 54 m/s (121 mph) or greater are not unusual. Windbreaks or artificial barriers are sometimes used to mitigate the effects of wind Buildings present a different problem to the designer.
