Abstract: A 1.8 kWp grid-connected solar photovoltaic system is being monitored at the Institute for Energy Technology, since June 1996. The average performance ratio for 22 months of operation was found to be 0.715, which translates to a final yield of 3.44 kWh/kWp/day. The average final efficiency was found to be 7.6%. These values exclude the month of October 1997, during which the system was not operating. Problems encountered, relating to the interface between the electric utility grid and the PV system are discussed.
