Abstract: Production and loss prediction play an important role in the effective planning and operation of solar photovoltaic systems. The performance of a solar PV system depends on the geographical location, system design, horizon and orientation of the solar panels in a given system. Professionals can use a variety of forecasting tools to effectively plan and predict grid connections and standalone solar PV systems. In this paper, we have developed an equivalent mathematical model for 1MWp grid-connected solar PV systems that have been developed and installed for Jaipur. With the help of the PV Syst design tool, performance parameters, yield and loss have been predicted for the equivalent model. Monthly earnings and losses as well as annual gains and losses have been synthesized. For the performance evaluation of the forecast data, we compared the techno economic simulation for different manufacturing technologies. Thin film, Ploy Crystalline and Mono Crystalline based systems have been developed. Predicted data can be used as an important tool for analyzing location and seasonal specific losses. Conducted research will be helpful in calculating area specific impact on selection of manufacturing technology of panels as well as its impact on active area of installed system.
