Electricity storage in photovoltaic systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Electricity storage is an important ingredient in solar power stations. Storage serves as a buffer for smoothing out fluctuations in both the solar input, as well as in the load, and for nighttime use of solar electricity. Because of the fluctuations in the input and the load, the level of stored electrical energy also varies in a somewhat random fashion. As a result, predictions on the performance of solar electricity power stations must be based on probabilistic considerations. The basic ideas of such an analysis are described in this paper.
