The standard approach when simulating photovoltaic output is to employ Typical Meteorological Year (TMY) data sets. This paper uses statistical analyses to investigate several TMYs. The objectives are: (1) to ascertain which TMY generation method most accurately reproduces solar conditions in the UK; (2) to discover the minimum time resolution at which TMYs delver reliable results; and (3) to determine if there are any circumstances in which TMYs can replace long-term time series.
