Title: Irradiance data analysis
Authors: Gupta, Tanvi
Keywords: DRNTU::Engineering
Issue Date: 2018
Abstract: Singapore is located close to the equator, and receives abundant sunshine throughout the year, opening avenues to harness energy from one of the most cost-effective renewable sources, the Sun. The irradiance is often interspersed by cloud cover in Singapore’s tropical climate, which causes fluctuations in the solar power output. The report ahead compares the performance of 2 different power inverters – SMA and SolarEdge, installed on the rooftop of Nanyang Technological University, to convert the output of PV panels from DC to AC. Exploration is done to evaluate the capability of the two inverters by using parameters such as output energy for both Polycrystalline & CIGS Thin Film panels. Further analysis is also conducted to understand trends in sunshine duration and global radiation in Singapore to assist in evaluating the performance of photovoltaic systems.
