This report describes the development of modeling techniques to characterize the reliability, availability, and maintenance costs of photovoltaic power systems. The developed models can be used by designers of PV systems in making design decisions and trade-offs to minimize life-cycle energy costs. Three actual intermediate PV system designs were modeled as examples. The input data estimates used and the results of the analyses are presented.doi:10.2172/6322198 fatcat:p5jytow75rd2ljtztehul5n2pe
