Grid-connected photovoltaic systems are required to introduce photovoltaic solar energy into urban areas. To analyze these systems, a 15 MWp power system has been installed at the site of Oued Keberit a town and commune in Souk Ahras, province in North-Eastern Algeria. The array power output was estimated by using measured I – V curves for the installed modules with minimization of mismatch losses. The supplied grid energy and main performances are described. Results show an annual performance of 83.9 % and the energy production is 23 735 MWh/year, which is sufficient energy to Power approximately 5 000 homes with clean renewable energy.
