how to calculate the quantity of solar panels

Hello, I am doing a simulation of a Chilean house and I use the measure Add Rooftop Pv in Openstudio. My question is: What data exposed in the summary of results help me calculate the amount of solar panels that the house requires ?. The second question is whether to apply this measure (Add rooftop PV) how can i calculate the amount of solar panels used and, if the answer is yes, how this calculation is made. The imputations of this measure are: Fraction of the surface area with active solar cells (Fraction), Cell efficiency (Fraction) and Efficiency of the inverter (Fraction).
