Abstract

Most PV installations in Malaysia so far are stand-alone systems. Grid-connected PV started with some test installations recently. The "Prototype Solar House" located near Kuala Lumpur was built in 2002 as part of an Industry Research and development Grant Scheme (IGS) project. It is unique, since in a typical residential house 3 different grid-connected roof installation with different PV generators (poly-, mono-, a-si; standard mounting, integration, roof tiles) have been built with emphasis also on architecture and thermal aspects. An innovative monitoring system allows assessing all relevant operating parameters for the PV systems. The installations run very reliable with high efficiency, but some grid specific aspects have been found relevant for proper functioning of grid-connected PV systems in Malaysia.
