Increasing hybrid PV/wind/diesel generator power output with increased PV module efficiency

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This research work focuses on increasing the power output of a hybrid energy system by giving a boost to the energy supplied from the PV module. It embraces the cooling of the PV module using a multi-concept cooling technique. An experiment was set up to reduce the surface temperature of the PV module to 20°C in order to increase its efficiency and hence power output. The experiment was performed using two 250 watts PV modules, water spraying was carried out on one of the modules which, was also attached with an Aluminium heat sink at the rear, while the other module was mounted without any form of cooling. The modelling of the hybrid energy system was done using MATLAB Simulink. An equation for PV module power output was used with a derating factor of 95% and the result of the experiment shows that power output of 262.4 watts is achievable, and the simulation result shows an increase in the power contributed by the module.
