Photovoltaic systems are typically optimised for performance or cost. In order to evaluate the wider parameter space and extensive measurement campaign has been designed that will provide guidance on future system designs. Four near-identical, grid-connected 200kW PV systems are being installed onto IKEA home furnishings stores in four countries with different climatic classification. The systems are integrated with comprehensive weather and power monitoring systems. This paper reports on the design, installation and scientific objectives of the project.
