COMPARATIVE INVESTIGATION OF FIXED AND TRACKING PV SOLAR POWER PLANTS ENERGY EFFICIENCY
The paper provides basic information on fixed (stationary), one-axis tracking and dual-axis tracking PV solar power plants. In this regard, a schematic overview of the PV solar power plant and basic information on its components (solar modules, inverters, monitoring system, etc.) are given. The following is a description of the fixed, one-tracking and dual-tracking PV solar power plant and their energy efficiency. Finally, measured results of power and temperature of fixed and dual-axis tracking solar modules of 50 W are presented.
Keywords: solar energy, PV solar power plant, one-axis tracking PV solar power plant, dual-axis tracking PV solar power plant.
