The PV tab in the Simulation Results window contains the following output variables.

Variable

Description

Rated Capacity

The rated capacity of the PV array under standard conditions, in kW

Mean Output

The average power amount of the PV array over the year, in kW and kWh/day

Capacity Factor

The average power output of the PV array (in kW) divided by its rated power, in %

Total Production

The total power output of the PV array over the year, in kWh/yr

Minimum Output

The minimum power output of the PV array over the year, in kW

Maximum Output

The maximum power output of the PV array over the year, in kW

PV Penetration

The average power output of the PV array divided by the average primary load, in %

Hours of Operation

The number of hours of the year during which the PV array output was greater than zero

Levelized Cost

The levelized cost of energy of the PV array, in $/kWh

In the bottom half of the page a DMap appears showing the power output of the PV array in each time step of the year.

Below is an example of PV output in the HOMER Grid:
