Summary about the research:
In this paper, performance evaluation of the grid-connected PV system is presented — the system installed in Sohar University northern Oman. The GCPV system secondly data collected from October 2012 till September 2019 (seven years). However, data is bulky, so that converted to minutes’ average. The measured data used to evaluate the performance technically taken into consideration system aging. Furthermore, power, energy, yield, and efficiencies calculated. The results showed that the use of GCPV systems in the Sohar region is very successful in terms of the limited aging of the system and its long-term viability with appropriate efficiency.
