A comparative study between these three different configurationshas been carried out from economic and reliability points of viewwith the main goal of selecting suitable one, to be installed atZafarâna site to feed the load requirement. A simulation is carriedout over one year using the hourly data of the load demand,insolation and temperature at Zafarâna site, Egypt as a case study.
The electrical power generated and terminal voltage of PV moduledepends on solar radiation and ambient temperature. Theequivalent electrical circuit describing the solar cells array used inthe analysis is shown in Fig. 1.
