Idea: compare per panel by model (e.g. all Q.Peak XXX)


#1

I’d like to be able to see how certain models of panel compare. Not arrays of panels or systems, but individual panels.

In some cases there’s panel level data available.
In other cases it’s just the power divided by array size.

Is it possible, or would it be a good idea, to compare systems normalized by panel type?
e.g. compare several systems nearby that all that use Q.Peak Duo 350’s.

This is my understanding of PV systems. If your system has micro-inverts on each panel or optimizers on each panel you can obtain panel level data from your inverter. If it is a serial string or a multiple serial strings system with one or more MPPTs you will not be able to obtain per panel data.
As a general rule if you need help you will have to supply more information about your system.
