Event Title

Analysis of the photovoltaic solar energy capacity of PV system built in Gjakova (Kosovo)

Session

Energy Efficiency Engineering

Description

As traditional fossil energy sources are becoming scarcer and more damaging to the environment, the development of renewable sources for electricity generation has become a top priority in the world today, and so has begun to develop rapidly even in Kosovo. Kosovo, with an average solar radiation of 1400 kWh / m2, has 1400 equivalent hours of sunlight, that corresponds to 3.8 hours per day, which means that Kosovo is a strategic and convenient place for the utilization of solar resources. This research study has analyzed the performance of photovoltaic system in Gjakova with a capacity of 6 MWh connected to the network, influenced by the climatic characteristics of the geographical area in which this PV system is installed, and also the orientations of modules and their types. The 6MWh system consists of two types of photovoltaic modules, monocrystalline silicon and polycrystalline silicon, inverters and other measuring and monitoring equipment. From the results of this paper, with all these factors taken into account, an estimate is made of the amount of electricity potentially generated each year by the photovoltaic system in Gjakova.
