International Journal of Energy Technology and Policy (IJETP), Vol. 17, No. 1, 2021

Abstract: The present investigation evaluates the feasibility of grid connected rooftop solar PV system for Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET), Bhagat Phool Singh Mahila Vishwavidyalya (BPSMV), Khanpur Kalan, Sonepat, Haryana, India. In this investigation, Solargis Photovoltaic (PV) Planner software has been utilised because of its ability to provide access to reliable PV potential information within short span of time. Present study analyses the performance of 160 kWp solar rooftop plant and compares the performances of different PV technologies on the basis of simulated energy yield and performance ratio (PR). Amorphous PV technology performs the best among the four PV technologies in terms of energy yield and PR. Life cycle cost of the proposed PV power plant has also been evaluated to get unit cost of electricity (UCE) of $0.051/kWh. Finally, comparative studies have been carried out with the existing thermal power plants (TPP) in Haryana.
