HOW TO CALCULATE SOLAR ENERGY GENERATION
October 4, 2015
These are the steps which takes place during solar energy generation
These also broadly happen to be the steps to calculate energy generation
Use Weather Databases: This is the most commonly used means to get radiation data and we have 3 alternatives here too:
The above radiation calculated is the radiation that falls on horizontal surface. However, it is important that the solar panels installed at any location in Earth’s Northern Hemisphere face south direction and panels installed in Southern Hemisphere face North Direction. The direction is important and so is the angle on inclination.
