Abstract

This research looks into the reliability metrics that are used to assess the strength of a solar system’s serial system, which is made up of four subsystems. Each subsystem consists of two parallel active components: two out of two photo-voltaic panels, one of two charge controllers, two of two batteries, and one of two inverters. Both the charge controller and the inverter have two human operators or switches. The Gumbel–Hougaard copula family was used to produce formulations of system dependability metrics such as reliability, mean time to failure (MTTF), availability, and profit function. Numerical examples are presented to show the obtained results and to investigate the impact of various system characteristics. The new study might help homes overcome some of the problems experienced by electric generation systems operating in hostile locations or under adverse weather conditions. A new model was developed, and solar photovoltaic system’s subsystems were analyzed in order to identify the most essential component. It was also indicated how to improve the system.
