This paper presents the development of online performance monitoring methods for grid-connected photovoltaic (GCPV) system based on hybrid Improved Fast Evolutionary Programming and Artificial Neural Network (IFEP-ANN). The approach has been developed and validated using previous predicted data measurement. Solar radiation (SR), module temperature (MT) and ambient temperature (AT) has been employed as the inputs, and AC output power (PAC) as the sole output to the neural network model. The actual data from the server has been called and uploaded every five minute interval into Matlab by using FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and the predicted AC output power has been produced based on the prediction developed in the training stages. It is then compared with the actual AC output power by using Average Test Ratio, AR. Any predicted AC output power less than the threshold set up, indicates an error has been occurred in the system. The obtained results show that the hybrid IFEP-ANN gives good performance by producing a sufficiently high correlation coefficient, R value of 0.9885. Besides, the proposed technique can analyse and monitor the system in online mode.
