Title: Bifacial PV System Mismatch Loss Estimation

Abstract

Nonuniform rear-irradiance on bifacial PV systems can cause additional mismatch loss, which may not be appropriately captured in PV energy production estimates and software. A simplified empirical relationship is presented that links the spatial variation of irradiance (to the resulting mismatch loss factor).
