Many existing PV plants have a large potential for optimization: The system components of existing PV plants are no longer state of the art. Moreover, even small technical improvements can greatly improve the plant performance. Also, the plant owner is often not aware of the claims that can be asserted against the provider before the guarantee expires. The plant operator must be aware of the potential and how to exploit it. Often it only takes a small amount of effort to gain an additional yield.
