This paper outlines three methodological approaches in order to reach the most costeffective PV configuration to meet the power loads. An evolution of PV sizing
methodologies with an increased level of intelligence is presented, so that the PV
system configuration is reliable, while at the same time cost-effective. Comparison of results is presented and argued. In addition, for Grid-tied PV systems, the concept of cost-effectiveness is discussed taking into account the PBP and the IRR issues with parameters the angle of inclination to horizontal and the width of the PV arrays.
