Sinop İli Koşullarında Monokristal ve Polikristal Fotovoltaik Panellerin Değerlendirilmesi
Türk Doğa ve Fen Dergisi
Due to the increase in energy consumption and environmental pollution in recent years, countries have included renewable energy in their long-term energy policies by supporting researches to increase the usage diversity and performance of renewable energy sources. Solar energy, one of these renewable energy types, and its various applications are of great importance to increase the energy production diversity. In this context, evaluation of monocrystalline and polycrystalline photovoltaic panel
... performance was performed under Sinop's climate conditions. In the first stage, the most suitable panel tilt for Sinop province was found by recording the voltage and current values of the panels at different panel angles. According to the results obtained, the optimum angle value of the monocrystalline and polycrystalline panels was determined as 38 degrees. Then, in different days, the efficiencies of the panels were calculated using the determined optimum angle and compared with the literature. At the same angles, it was observed that the monocrystalline panel produced higher power than the polycrystalline panel and the monocrystalline panel was more efficient when examined from hourly measurements. Experimental panel yields were found to be 0.162 and 0.139 for monocrystalline and polycrystalline panels, respectively. Finally, the effect of temperature change on the panels was evaluated. With this study, the most suitable panel type is determined for Sinop province and its surrounding conditions, thus preventing unnecessary investments and efficiency losses.
