Survey of faults and issues with PV systems and components

A web-based survey has been developed to capture typical faults in PV systems when exposed to the range of climates in Australia.

Although PV systems are very reliable, conditions in Australia can be very harsh and so equipment can fail or output can simply be suboptimal. Very little information is available on the types of problems that occur, where they occur and how often. The survey can be found here – https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/revised_pvportal
