Abstract Utility-scale photovoltaic (PV) generation is being ramped-up in Brazil in recent years, as a result of intense price reductions. Extreme operating temperatures, high humidity levels, and a blue-biased distribution of irradiance in comparison with the standard ASTM G-173 spectrum, lead to contrasting operational outputs of the various commercially-available PV technologies. The performance assessment of six different PV technologies installed at eight different climatic regions in… CONTINUE READING
