In recent years, increased emphasis has been placed on Photovoltaic(PV) Technology as the application of this technology has shown a sustained growth.In the emerging PV markets worldwide, the use of appropriate estimation of the operating performance grid-connected PV system is becoming more and more crucial. This paper presents an assessment of the electricity generated by 100kW PV grid connected system installed on the rooftop of Electrical Science Block of Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College, Bidar.A central issue in the sustainable diffusion of PV technology is represented by the actual energy efficiency of the PV system. For this reason, a performance analysis needs to be carried out. The various performance indices that are used to analyze thesystemperformanceareperformanceratio,system loss, system efficiency and specific yield. The experimental data was recorded from July 2016 to July 2017 based on real timeobservation.
