In every time step, HOMER calculates the renewable penetration using the following equation:

equations_p_ren

where:


 

 

Pren

= total renewable electrical power output in this time step [kW]

 

Lserved

= total electrical load served in this time step [kW]

On the Electrical tab of the Simulation Results window, HOMER reports the maximum value of renewable penetration that occurs during the year.
