Topic: 6. 2 Design and Operation of PV Systems
Summary / Abstract: We present a detailed performance model for bifacial PV modules. Our model employs configuration factors to compute irradiance the rear surface of each cell in the module, estimates cell temperatures from irradiance and ambient temperature, and predicts of PMP. Model performance is analyzed using measurements of bifacial module performance outdoors in Albuquerque, NM, USA.
