Abstract

An additional complexity to having PV systems on rooftops is that the PV system will be exposed to wind forces and as a result will have to be capable of withstanding those forces. PV systems must withstand escalated weather scenarios such as windstorms. Uplifts from strong winds can create appreciable additional loads or load concentrations.
