  "abstract": "<p>We consider a solar power supply for a LTE macro\u00a0base station (BS) based on a photovoltaic (PV) panel and a\u00a0battery, and we develop two discrete-time Markov chain (DTMC)\u00a0models for the analysis and the dimensioning of the system\u00a0elements (PV panel size and battery capacity). The DTMC models<br>\naccount for the solar irradiance levels in pairs or triples of\u00a0consecutive days, and for the quantity of energy stored in the\u00a0battery. From the DTMC steady-state (or transient) solution it\u00a0is possible to derive performance metrics on which the system\u00a0dimensioning can be based. We apply our models to BS locations\u00a0in southern and northern Italy. Results show that the simpler\u00a0model contains sufficient details for an effective system design.</p>",
