Abstract/Summary:


This paper provides an overview of the prEN 50530, the upcoming European Standard for measuring the overall efficiency of PV inverters. It explains in depth the approach and methodology introduced in the standard for a combined assessment of the conversion as well as the Maximum Power Point tracking efficiency. In addition, a background insight on the test conditions, the necessary test equipment and interpretation of the results is provided.
