This paper summarises 4 years of monitoring of a 850 Wp roof-mounted grid-connected system in our laboratory in Ajaccio. The system has been in operation since December 2000. The PV array consists of 10 BP585F modules and a SMA Sunny Boy 700 inverter. Climatic and solar radiation conditions al the site are reviewed, each component is modelled and the monthly performance of the system is assessed from a component point of view and from a global perspective.
