The primary bus cable and secondary bus cable, on the one hand, reduce the loss of the bus line while ensuring economy, on the other hand, make the voltage drop of the DC cable tend to be consistent, so that as many photovoltaic modules as possible work at the maximum power output point. Improve the energy utilization rate of the photovoltaic power generation system and increase the output power of the photovoltaic power generation system.

(7) Taking the geological conditions of the area where the power station is located as the starting point, fully considering the control factors of different foundation forms, materials, construction techniques and construction costs, and comprehensively selecting basic types that not only meet the structural safety requirements, but are also economical and practical.

(8) For photovoltaic power stations installed on the ground, roof and water surface, the design points that should be paid attention to in the reliable lightning protection grounding design are proposed to reduce or avoid damage to the equipment in the photovoltaic power station by external overvoltage and internal overvoltage. And to ensure personal safety.

(9) Briefly introduce the requirements, data management, team and rules and regulations in the operation and maintenance of photovoltaic power stations, so that designers can have a preliminary understanding of the processes and characteristics of operation and maintenance of photovoltaic power stations, and provide a combination of later operation and maintenance and optimization of the design work in the early stage.
