Abstract: This paper analysed the optimum area utilisation for maximum power output in solar photovoltaic system by two different methods as follows: 1) Solar panels at 90° in three different heights; 2) The panel was tested at both agricultural and dry land at 90°. Load was maintained at half load condition for first method and performance of panel output data was recorded using data logger. The final study was done by using IV and PV characteristic performance. The efficiency of solar photovoltaic was carried out for both studies.

 

Keywords: optimum area; vertical position; solar panels; photovoltaic systems; PV systems; maximum power; solar energy; solar power.
