Standard Title:
IEEE 1526TM-2003, Recommended Practice For Testing the Performance of Stand Alone Photovoltaic Systems.

The test methods and procedures included in this document cover stand-alone photovoltaic systems. Procedures provided are for conducting performance testing of individual components and complete systems. The methodology includes testing the system outdoors in prevailing conditions and indoors under simulated conditions.

This recommended practice provides test methods and procedures for determining stand-alone photovoltaic system performance and conducting design verification. Test procedures provided in this document are intended to assist designers, manufacturers, system integrators, users, and laboratories in conducting these performance tests.
