Levels of atmospheric dust in dessert geographical regions are amongst the highest across diverse climatological systems. In these types of climates atmospheric dust content strongly depends on the target location and often presents specific seasonal patterns. The performance of photovoltaic power plants operating in such dessert conditions will deteriorate by the accumulation of dust particles upon the glass front plate of PV Modules (Soiling). Successful Engineering, Finance, Operation… CONTINUE READING
