Experimental Analysis of a Photovoltaic Power Plant in a Desert Environment– Adrar area –
Algeria has one of the highest solar deposits in the world, the average duration of sunshine in the Algerian Sahara is 3500 hours, and this potential can be an important factor for sustainable development in this region, if it is exploited economical way. In this context, it should be noted that the city of Adrar is located in the region of the "solar belt", which enjoys abundant sunshine of more than 3000 hours of sunshine per year, based on data from Overall hourly irradiation on a horizontal surface, the Adrar region is distinguished by a higher average daily irradiation of up to 5.7 kWh/m2/day. In the present work, an operational performance analysis of a polycrystalline silicon photovoltaic system for one year is performed. The installed capacity of this system is 20 MW, and it is exposed in an arid climate in Adrar of southern Algeria.
