Determination the optimal tilt and azimuth angle of photovoltaic system for maximum energy in Bucharest region, Romania - Case Study
National Institute for Research and Development in Environmental Protection – INCDPM Bucharest, 294, Spl. Independentei, District 6th, Bucharest, Postal Code 060031, Romania
This study was conducted to evaluate the feasibility of installing a photovoltaic system for supplying the electric load of an environmental institute and to determinate the optimal tilt and azimuth angle of an 100 kW photovoltaic power plant located on the roof of institute. Those parameters plays an important role in maximizing the solar radiation collected by a PV panel. Simulations were made with PVsyst V6.39 for south-east orientation (100; 450) and south-west orientation (100; 450), and for the tilt angle the simulations were made at 100, 150, 370, 600 and 900. The simulation has been done to study the influence of the photovoltaic panels orientation on the amount of electricity produced each month of the year as well as on the total annual amount of electricity. Was experimentally determined by repetitive simulations in the range 300-400 for tilt angle and zero azimuth, optimal parameters for the position of photovoltaic panels. Was defined as the optimal position, the pair of values [zero azimuth, tilt angle 370] where the plant generates maximum energy in one year compared to any other set of values that defines the position of the photovoltaic panels.
