Modeling PV-Battery Systems in SAM 2017.1.17

Nicholas Diorio describes and demonstrates the new battery model features in SAM 2017.1.17. These include:

  • DC-connected batteries
  • PV-battery systems with PPA financial models for utility-scale systems
  • Simple battery model for PVWatts
  • Improvements to automated dispatch algorithm

For an introduction to SAM's PV-battery model, see Modeling a photovoltaic battery system in SAM 2016.3.14.
