Project: Performances and reliability of solar photovoltaic modules.

Abstract:
The production of PV modules is initially given for an ambient temperature of 25°C, while in reality the Algerian climate is characterized by a strong summer heat, where the temperature exceeds 40°C. On the other hand, the state of the surface of the module determines its absorption of the solar spectrum. In practice, the module is exposed to various sources of dust and spot and the latter reduce the photonique absorption, and consequently, the production of modules. The other parameter to be taken into account concerns the present obstacles around a PV power plant and which cannot be avoided. So, the study of these parameters is essential, for a good sizing of the PV installations. This study is to be led to analyze and define, the impact of each of these parameters on the performances of modules, then determine the real potential of every region and predict the evolution of the production of the PV installations all year round.

Objectives:

  • Deepen the understanding of the functioning of PV modules, procedures of characterization of PV modules and methods of quantification of their performances and efficiencies.
  • Characterize PV modules with and without constraints (dust, strong heat, shades) may confront our results with the theoretical models.
  • Propose scenarios of essays applied to PV modules constituted by solar cells in the silicon multi-crystalline.
