The blue "Maximum AC Power" curve is the amount of generated power expected at this location on this date with a clear sky. It is the amount of solar radiation hitting this location measured above the atmosphere minus the expected losses through the atmosphere, and accounting for the tilt (14°) and orientation (177°) of the PV panels and the efficiency of the power inverter. Extraterrestrial solar radiation is calculated using solpos.c which is distributed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Several types of atmospheric conditions, e.g., scattered clouds, can cause the generated AC power to exceed the maximum AC power curve.|
