8.5.3 Self-Consumption

Course subject(s) Module 8. Introduction to PV System Design

As the number of pv systems grows, the challenges associated with the increasing decentralized power generation grow as well. In the final module we will discuss some of these grid-integration issues. In this video you will learn about self-consumption, a concept that can ease the integration of pv systems in the grid. The degree of self-consumption of the generated power needs to be considered during the design of a pv system. In this video you will learn what self-consumption is and how it affects pv system design.
