Solar energy is one of the most promising green and eco-friendly renewable energy out of the wind and other non-conventional energies. In nature, we have abundance of solar energy, due to this there is a significant attention on capturing the solar energy by photovoltaic systems in recent years. Photovoltaic energy conversion is most harnessing renewable energies for different communities especially in developing countries like India. The efficiency decrease is not only due to the shadows of

In this work, two different analyses are carried out with changing wind velocities and angle. The aerodynamic effects on the panels were investigated by varying the orientation of panels from 0 to 180 degrees and two different wind speeds of 5m/s and 25m/s. Initial angle of 0 degrees which is normal to the flow direction is solved for two different wind speeds of 5 m/s and 25 m/s and followed by changing the orientation of panels from 0 to 180 degree inclination to investigate the aerodynamic effects on the panels. Depending on the results obtained a futuristic panel design will be proposed which can generate optimum power and also aerodynamically effective. This current study indicates that the pressure distribution on the front face of the solar panels, which are aptly suitable to design optimized solar panel shapes.
