Full description

We present a publicly available dataset containing photovoltaic (PV) system power measurements and metadata from 1,287 residential installations across three states/territories in Australia--- though mainly for the cities of Canberra, Perth and Adelaide.
The data is recorded between September 2016 and March 2017 at 10-min temporal resolution and consists of real inverter reported power measurements from PV systems that are well distributed throughout each city.
The dataset represents a considerably valuable resource as public access to spatio-temporal PV power data is almost non-existent; this dataset has been used in numerous articles already by the authors.
The PV power data is free to download and is available in its raw, quality controlled (QC) and `tuned' formats.
Each PV system is accompanied by individual metadata including geolocation, user reported metadata and simulated parameterisation.
Data provenance, usage rights and example usage are detailed within.
Researchers are encouraged to leverage this rich spatio-temporal dataset of distributed PV power data in their research.
