Abstract

In Bangladesh, the usage of electricity is continuously increasing. Govt. is also trying to increase the electricity production by installing new power plants to meet the additional power demands. Most of the power plants are natural gas-based, coal-based or nuclear power-based. Considering the greenhouse effect; solar power plants could be one of the best solutions to meet the additional power demands as well as it has a lot of financial and environmental benefits. In this paper, modeling and analysis of a 100 kWp PV solar plant using PVsyst software will be discussed briefly. Important factors such as required area, the performance ratio of the arrays, total energy production per year and losses will also be discussed.

Keywords: Photovoltaic, Solar plant, PVsyst, Irradiation, Solar plant in Bangladesh, Grid-connected PV
