    Could some electronics/PV guru shed light
    on this ? While browsing some literature
    on solar power installation design, I came
    upon the term "power generation factor" for
    a solar panel. Googling this term has not
    helped much. Any hints/suggestions as to
    what this means/measures ?

    A bit more context would help - or indeed, a link to the literature in

    It could be a reference to the proportion of incident energy converted
    to electrical energy.

    It might also be the ratio of the average power generated to the power
    that would be generated if the panels were in full sunlight 24/7.

    Either way, it would be expressed as positive dimensionless value less
    than 1.
