Abstract: This paper presents a performance study on a standalone solar photovoltaic system. The application of photovoltaic solar cells is increasingly prevalent in Indonesia. Indonesia is a tropical country, where throughout the year, get sun exposure. This condition strongly supports the use of photovoltaic solar cells as a source of electrical energy. Many small to large-scale solar power generation systems have been built in Indonesia. On a small scale in the form of a standalone system, solar power plants are usually used as secondary power plants, where primary power plants still come from state electricity companies. In this research, the analysis of the performance of solar power plants for standalone systems with a capacity of 400 Wp. Efforts to improve the performance of solar cells are made by using a mirror reflector. The results showed that the mirror reflector could increase the output power of photovoltaic solar cells.
