Jan 2005: Administratively withdrawn. General performance criteria for terrestrial photovoltaic (PV) systems are established, and an overall framework for all detailed terrestrial photovoltaic power system performance standards is provided. Criteria for subsystem performance and standard test methods to be used for performance measurements are recommended. System installation, operation, and maintenance are covered. Since thermal conditioning elements may be part of the system design, some consideration is given to the thermal subsystem. The criteria apply to all terrestrial photovoltaic power systems.
