Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) is commonly used to optimize the power output of solar arrays for LEO satellites. Traditional MPPT techniques such as Perturb & Observe often struggle when the satellite is rotating and the temperature and incident irradiance are rapidly changing. This scenario frequently occurs with miniaturized...

East/West (E/W) vertical bifacial photovoltaic (PV) modules can achieve higher profits than the conventional North/South (N/S) tilted configuration depending on the design choices and external conditions. In this study a model based on 2D view factor concept is developed to estimate the power generated by a large-scale bifacial PV farm,...

This paper proposes a shared multi-stakeholder PV system for traction substations and nearby residential loads to reduce the need for storage, AC grid exchange, and curtailment. The residential stakeholders offer both the base electrical load and the solar panels installation space needed by the traction stakeholder, who brings the peak load...

The energy matching of PV driven air conditioners is influenced by building load demand and PV generation. Merely increasing energy performance of building or PV capacity separately may improve the energy balance on a large time resolution, the real-time energy mismatching problem is still serious. In this study, a coordinated optimization...

Many functional photovoltaic (PV) modules are decommissioned prematurely, often due to the financially motivated repowering of PV systems. This study assesses under which circumstances there is an environmental incentive to reuse these modules as opposed to recycling and replacing them with new, more efficient modules. A life cycle assessment...

This thesis presents experimental research on a phenomenon that has been widely observed in photovoltaic systems in recent years. Hot-spots, most commonly reported as areas of extreme temperature within PV modules, have been identified as a critical issue in the industry. This is primarily due to the fact that solar cells are subjected to...
