The technical white paper, entitled Oversizing PV Arrays, to address issues faced when designing photovoltaics (PV) systems so that the array has a higher peak capacity than the inverter.

According to GSES, oversizing PV arrays has become an economically viable way to increase system output, due to the recent decreasing cost of PV modules.

“By oversizing the array, the system will produce more power in the morning and evening, and during other times of low solar irradiation. In effect, this will increase the amount of time that inverters are operating at their nameplate capacity.

“The downside of...
