PV CELL TEMPERATURE ESTIMATION AND PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS BASED ON CHANGING ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS

2022-8
Youssef, Youssef Maged Mohamed Baligh
Climate change effects are on the rise due to greenhouse gas emission from the combustion of fossil fuels. The need to find alternative sustainable and renewable energy sources is of great importance. In Northern Cyprus, solar energy resources are abundant and must be utilized to provide energy security for the future and mitigate the effects of climate change. Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels are used to harness solar energy and produce electricity. The operating cell temperature of PV modules directly affects the overall performance of PV systems. Lower operating cell temperatures result in a higher module efficiency and therefore higher energy generation. Accurate estimation of the PV cell temperature is crucial to accurately assess the feasibility and economic viability of a PV power plant project. Several PV cell temperature estimation models are presented in the literature and are used in different applications for cell temperature estimation. PV cell temperature estimation models are investigated to assess the performance and reliability of the models specifically for Northern Cyprus weather conditions. Furthermore, environmental factors such as dust affect the performance of PV modules as dust layers cause the attenuation of sunlight which prevent the utilization of incident solar radiation by the PV modules. The accumulation of dust on PV modules is called soiling. The effect of soiling on the performance of PV modules is investigated.

Kavas, Genco; Taylan, Onur; Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems (2019-8)
Excess amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission is the main reason of global warming. Renewable energy systems are one possible way to decrease GHG emission and solar energy is one of options; however, fluctuations on solar energy production is one of the main drawbacks. Accurate estimation of energy production from a solar power plant, such as PV-based plant is important to satisfy energy demand successfully. To be able to estimate energy production in advance, solar energy incident on PV modules should be ...

Kaya, Ferhat Emre; Güven, Ali Nezih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
Increasing concerns about climate change and global pollution rates emphasized the importance of renewable energy resources. Rising pressure to utilize green energy alternatives requires some changes and rearrangements on the available alternative current (AC) oriented electric power system. Moreover, electric charging stations, renewable and distributed electricity sources like battery storage systems, solar power plants use direct current (DC) and additional power conversion is needed for their integratio...
Optimum daily operation of a wind-hydro hybrid system
Ercan, Eray; Kentel Erdoğan, Elçin (2022-06-01)
© 2022 Elsevier LtdDue to the negative effects of fossil fuels on the environment and health, energy supply is shifting towards renewables. The integration of renewable energy systems is challenging due to the intermittent nature of renewables, however this can be mitigated through storage. Uncertainty in electricity prices in spot markets further complicates the operation of these systems. Pumped storage hydropower is currently the most viable form of large-scale energy storage, and operation of renewable ...

Renewable energy sources are presently being considered as alternatives to fossil fuels, because they are perpetual, environmentally friendly, and release negligible amounts of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere while producing energy. A disadvantage of renewable energy systems, however, is that continuous energy generation is not possible by using only one type of renewable energy system, since renewable energy resources depend on climate and weather conditions. Two or more renewable energy systems can be ...
Emission sources and full spectrum of health impacts of black carbon associated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in urban environment: A review
Ali, Muhammad Ubaid; Siyi, Lin; Yousaf, Balal; Abbas, Qumber; Hameed, Rashida; Zheng, Chunmiao; Kuang, Xingxing; Wong, Ming Hung (Informa UK Limited, 2020-03-19)
With increased urbanization and industrialization, the global burden of anthropogenic emissions through biomass and fossil fuel combustion has increased significantly, threatening the global climate system, air quality and human health. Half of the aerosol particles emitted as a result of combustion are in the form of black carbon (BC), co-emitted with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Due to strong sorption efficiency, BC act as a carrier for highly toxic and carcinogenic PAHs in air, water and soil...
