Can an Inverter with a Generic PV simulate with a Specific PV as the same system?  



I am new to Homer Pro and I have a question about PV's. It is clear that the bigger capacity panels are inverters with a generic PV. My question is, if I would like to model a chosen inverter with a chosen panel from the catalog, when I simulate the results, will it know that the specific panel I chose be connected to that specific inverter? Or does that specific inverter only model the "generic PV". If that is the case, how do I know any information about the "generic PV" to make an accurate simulation. I am quite confused by this.

Thank you!

Hello Philly,


If you move the PV to the AC bus in HOMER, you get the option of modeling a dedicated inverter for PV. Here you can model a PV with a specific inverter that is dedicated to this PV. Modeling a system converter would be common to all the components in the system as it is modeled as a bi-directional converter(rectifier/inverter).

How  it s possible  can  I model a PV with a specific inverter, I have a big PV power plant of 20 MW, but for the inverter Homer gives the result with Inverter of 100 KW which is incorrect?

please how to introduce the real input and out put of the inverter?

In the components of Homer , there is no transformers to connect to grid? why?
