Isolated Or Remote System
Autonomous photovoltaic system not connected to the grid. These systems require batteries or other forms of accumulation. Often they used in remote or inaccessible locations.
Kilowatt
The kilowatt is a unit of power equivalent to 1000 watts. The watt is the unit of international system, equivalent to one joule per second. The kilowatt is a unit of power equivalent to 1000 watts. The watt is the unit of international system, equivalent to one joule per second.
Maximum Power Point Of A Panel
Power supplied by a photovoltaic panel when the product of the voltage intensity is maximum.
Orientation
Angle South Solar orientation to the surface of a panel. The South Geographic (or real) should not be confused with the magnetic, which is the pointing compass, although For Spain the difference does not involve large deviations.
Performance
 It is the ratio between the energy actually transformed into useful energy and that requires a specific computer to operate.
Photon
Each of the particles that make up the light. A photon is the amount of energy in the form of electromagnetic radiation, emitted or absorbed by matter. Each of the particles that make up the light.
