Soiling losses of for a given PV array are determined by the most soiled cell / panel in a series string. The PV Pattern Soiling Station (PV PSS) is designed to easily mount to the ends of the PV arrays, utilizing a proportional number of cells to the native arrays and in this way is representative of the soiling losses of the entire PV array.

Cell-Level Pattern Soiling Detection
The PV PSS is designed to measure and model soiling losses at the panel-level while providing the accuracy and simplicity of short-circuit current measurements at the cell-level.
