Abstract

The power output of a photovoltaic (PV) module depends on the geographical locations (latitude, longitude and solar irradiance), tilt angle and its climatic condition (humidity, temperature) and shading due to soiling, bird droppings, etc. This paper deals with the power loss in solar PV system due to deposit of dust particles on the PV surface. The loss of power due to soiling was studied for a rooftop solar PV system installed in SOA (Deemed to be University), Bhubaneswar, India. It was observed that power loss to an extent of 3.09% per day occurred during non-monsoon months, while it reduced to 0.93% per day during monsoon months due to accumulation of soil on PV modules.
