“I am inspired by various organizations like MNRE & UPNEDA etc who are regularly providing beneficial scheme to install solar panels under the state & central goverment scheme with their future plan. So therefore, I focused my attention on deciphering how reliable the solar panels actually are.” says Mohammed Yasir, Author of Reliability Analysis of Solar Panels.
A Solar Panel refers to a panel designed to absorb the sun’s rays as a source of energy for generating electricity or heating.
A photovoltaic (PV) module is a packaged, connect assembly of typically 6×10 solar cells. Solar Photovoltaic panels constitute the solar array of a photovoltaic system that generates and supplies solar electricity in commercial and residential applications.
Yasir’s book presents the utility of averaged model for PV array with Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) boost converter along with its control mechanism & algorithm by using DC-DC Boost Converter through MATLAB. This approach is suggested to analyze the reliability of any solar panel for the whole year & practiced over DSP210D. The MPPT is responsible to draw the maximum possible power from the PV Array and feed it to the load via DC-DC boost converter which steps up the voltage to required magnitude & enable PV arrays to operate at maximum power point. The incremental conductance algorithm is employed to control this boost converter. The main aim is to track the maximum power point of the photovoltaic module so that the maximum possible power can be extracted from the photovoltaic with the proper & schematic analysis of system reliability, stability & efficiency under various irradiance conditions. For which optimized and un-optimized output for DSP210D panel using PSO, P&O and GA technique is presented. The algorithms utilized for MPPT are generalized algorithms.
The main thrust of the research enshrined in this book is to direct researchers towards the knowledge to overcome the problem of failure of any solar array at different atmospheric dynamic, & static condition in future.
This books can turn out especially fruitful in this era of drastic climatic catastrophes and climate change.
