Solar is booming. Every day, we read about bigger, more ambitious solar installations being commissioned, driven by the latest technology in modules, racking and other balance of system components.
By definition, PV plants' performance diminishes every year due to the inherent degradation in PV modules. The degradation effect is compounded by other factors, including uneven soiling. These issues all lead to a condition known as "mismatch", whereby panels in a solar array start to behave differently and thus reduce the amount of energy that plant can generate.
