A Comparison Study among Many Methods for Solar PV Plant Design and Sizing for Technical College of Engineering /Mosul
Keywords:Solar PV system, Design PV system, PV-SOL program, MATLAB simulation
The use of renewable energy in the recent years has become terrible, particularly solar PV plants. In this paper, a comparison study was made between the PV *SOL program and the MATLAB simulation program which used to calculate the design procedures for the solar plant laboratory inside renewable energy laboratory a Technical College of Engineering /Mosul. A New Zealand in method was depended for these calculation, including the environment effect and some factors related with solar system components. The results showed the best design with less components and cost .Finally both programs gave the same design.
