Performance analysis of semitransparent photovoltaic module for skylights

The Semitransparent Photovoltaic (STPV) module could replace the glazing materials of the skylight in residential buildings, which minimizes the energy consumption in artificial lighting, heating, and cooling load of the building. In this study, the electrical, thermal and daylight performance of STPV skylights are investigated for actual outdoor environmental condition by installing it on the rooftop window of the experimental

Photovoltaic energy yield modelling under desert and moderate climates: What-if exploration of different cell technologies

PV module testing under standard conditions is an important and well-established procedure, which plays a vital role in module rating. However, PV modules rarely operate at standard conditions therefore their field performance should be predicted based on long term outdoor monitoring or by means of models – so called energy yield models, which combine PV module characteristics with varying environmental
