Model based Optimization of Tilt angle for Solar PV Panels in Jodhpur

Abstract

The performance of a photovoltaic (PV) panel is primarily dependent on the solar radiation received. Thus the position and angle of tilt of a PV panel are important factors in PV system design. The amount of energy captured from the sun depends on the tilt angle of the solar panels. If solar panels are mounted horizontally or vertically, lesser energy is captured than if the panels face due south in the Northern Hemisphere and due north in the Southern Hemisphere and are tilted towards the sun. This paper examines the factors affecting tilt angle for the solar panel and aims to select an appropriate theoretical model for determining the optimal tilt angle for solar PV panels placed at Jodhpur, Rajasthan. Four isotropic models and four anisotropic models have been considered to identify the best model for the given
