Abstract

The operating temperature is a critical factor affecting the performances of photovoltaic (PV) modules. In this work, relevant models are proposed for the prediction of this operating temperature using data (ambient temperature and solar irradiance) based on real measurements conducted in the tropical region. For each weather condition (categorized according to irradiance and temperature levels), the temperatures of the PV modules obtained using the proposed approach is compared with the corresponding experimentally measured value. The results show that the proposed models have a smaller Root Mean Squared Error than other models developed in the literature for all weather conditions, which confirms the reliability of the proposed framework.
