A photovoltaic PV installation is exposed to extreme ambient conditions due to the solar radiation, humidity, wind and thermal stresses. A comprehensive design of its power system could follow two complementary strategies: one consisting in the adoption of special components and the other one consisting in an adequate installation of standard components providing a continuous control of its operation life cycle. At this aim the paper suggests to subdivide the DC wiring system in a final distribution to the panels with high stress exposition, wired by special solar cables, and a main distribution as much as possible with an installation avoiding the stress exposition, wired by normal cables. The paper introduces a thermal aging model for the cables that allows to define an aging criterion and a life monitoring tool. The tool evaluates and monitors the real thermal aging of the main wiring system and could be integrated in the supervisory system.
