Abstract

Solar photovoltaic systems have now become integral part of Indian as well as global power systems. Rooftop and ground mounted solar systems have become very popular across India these days. The ground mounted systems produce large scale power and hence, are used for industrial applications also. This paper presents a detailed analysis of a 100-kW solar photovoltaic system with the different tilt angles taken into consideration for orientation of solar panels. Three different tilt angles 23°, 38° and 8° are considered in the software PVSyst® and output yield over a year are compared for the location of Rajkot, Gujarat, India. The findings are presented in the numeric form as well as in the graphical form.

Keywords: Solar photovoltaic systems, tilt angle, azimuth angle, power yield per annum
