This paper presents an initial analysis of a large scale PV system monitoring campaign. Ongoing project aims to be a detailed inter-comparison of different modules technologies installed in a different types of climates, identifying optimal configurations in different climatic zones. Detailed description of created plants and developed monitoring facilities was shown. Appropriate performance indicators are discussed and applied to the measurements of two sites. The resulting performance analysis of different modules technologies, is presented and discussed. Differences between crystalline and thin film technologies were marked, with thin film technologies not performing as well as expected. This is most likely due to installation issues and will be rectified in the near future.. Further investigations will be undertaken and reported in close future.
