hello every one,

in the component source on oemof for example for pv, the *fix* should be defined as a fixed of normalised output of the pv plant. This the way how I did it but I’am not sure wether I did properly.

- I used the website https://www.renewables.ninja to generate pv plant output. bevor getting the result as hourly data I had to define the following parameters:

- Dataset: MERRA-2
- year of data: 2019
- Capacity: 1 kW
- System loss: 0.1
- Tracking: none
- Tilt: 6°
- Azimuth: 180°

- In order to normalise the data I was thinking I just have to divide the output data by he max output generation of the pv plan, in my case is that 0,740 kW. This may be a stupid question but is that the correct way to do it ? or should I normalised the data by the Capacity I choose above in the parameters which is 1 kW.

I’am thinking about this situation for example for this ideal pv location:

If I would normalise the hourly output pv plant by the chosen Capacity (1 kW) and I’ve got for some timesteps data generation wich are > 1 kW for example 1,5 kW due to good meteorological weather condition inn the location, the normalised data would be > 1, wich is problematic for oemof. In contrast to that dividing by the maximum generation would not cause this issue, all the data would be < 1. I’am bit confused what is the correct way

I hope you got the problem.

I’d be grateful for any help.
