In this paper the row-spacing and tilt trade-off, east-west orientation and adjustable tilt methods are discussed and evaluated as module layout optimisation methods which can be used to navigate some of the common design constraints in the solar PV sector. Site-related constraints and advancements in the photovoltaic (PV) industry over the past couple of years have necessitated the need to review the PV system design process. Design constraints, technological advancements and a variable range… CONTINUE READING
