I'm supposed to design a PV system that could provide an average electric power of 10kW. The average power generation of a solar panel is 20% of the peak power generation. Determine Peak power.

• physics -

If the average of peak power is 20% of peak power, then peak power is 5 times the average.
5 x 10 kW = 50 kW
