Improvement in maximum power generation and service continuity of a PV system
The main drawback associated with PV system is inconstant solar radiation and non-continuity of service. This paper proposes methods for enhancing service continuity and increasing the solar radiation on the solar panel. Tilt angle optimization of solar panel and use of mirrors for directing the sunlight increases the net incident radiation. Since solar power output is directly proportional to the total incident radiation, the efficiency of the panel increases. Interrupted supply is another issue associated with PV system. A PV system equipped with a dc-dc converter (act as interface between PV module and load) which is vulnerable to open circuit and short circuit fault is analyzed. The service continuity of such a system is achieved using an additional switch associated with 2 diodes.
