A computational fluid dynamic study of PV cell temperatures in novel platform and standard arrangements

Edgar, Ross; Stachurski, Zbigniew; Cochard, Steven

Description

Solar systems using photovoltaic (PV) modules must operate in climatic regions that range from relatively benign to hostile. The performance, lifetime and failure rate of the modules at the heart of these systems vary considerably with environmental factors and particularly temperature. The degree to which the design of PV system platforms influences module temperatures and consequently stress outcomes is investigated. The aim is to estimate the PV-cell temperature of modules in novel platforms...[Show more]
