Comparison Between the Articles Related to Solar Panel
Distributed Energy Resources and Benefits to the Environment
Summary: The article “Distributed energy resources and benefits to the environment”, spotlight on the International Energy Outlook, as the article focuses that there will be 44% increase in the energy demand from the year, 2006 to 2030. However, there is need of the higher energy efficiencies so that there could be tremendous environmental impact and people could utilize the energy in the better and through the traditional method. The solar panel is analyzed as the best available renewable, energy sources by the article because it could help in future global energy demands.
Evaluation: The article was published in Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, the article is extremely professional piece because it has the comparisons of the best source of the renewable energy, however, the article clearly aligns with my topic of solar panels. There is the mindset to examine the future needs through solar panels.
Comparison: I did the comparison of the two other sources with it, the article provide with the clear knowledge of solar panel future needs, the article is said to be a definitely trustworthy piece because the future needs of energy focusing on the future generations are analyzed.
Optimum Fixed Orientations and Benefits of Tracking for Capturing Solar Radiation in the Continental
Summary: The article,“Optimum fixed orientations and benefits of tracking for capturing solar radiation in the continental” focus on the optimum tilt and azimuth angles as solar panels are calculated from the different sides of U.S and there was the grid of 0.1⁰ by 0.1⁰. However, the analysis done by the continental United States and the global irradiation incident, there was the focus on the flat horizontal panel and the 2-axis tracking panel. Thus, there was the consideration of this effect. The resulting focus on the PV temperature coefficient in the annual irradiation, the tracking panel concludes that there could be the significant impact if a country uses the solar panel, as there could be economic payback and reduction in the annual power production.
Evaluation: The article was published in “Renewable Energy” and analyzed the major states of U.S, which can be beneficial for me in the major points of the analysis were New Mexico, Colorado, coastal areas and the Florida, Texas. It is a definitely a trustworthy piece because the researches are done in the different states, the impact is seen in the United States economy and the section is statistics are well explained.
Comparison: While analyzing the article I did the analysis of the article with the Sulaiman and Hussain it is known that this article is better with that because it focuses on different states, the article is definitely a trustworthy piece because impacts the United States economy are focused.
Effect of Manual Tilt Adjustments on Incident Irradiance on Fixed and Tracking Solar Panels
Summary: The article “Effect of manual tilt adjustments on incident irradiance on fixed and tracking solar panels”, there the data was analyzed; as there was the utilization of the Perez radiation model, which was focused for the solar radiation, there was axis tracking surfaces throughout the years. The analysis was done geographically diverse areas; regarding the temperate latitude sites, the operations take place in the United States of America and the south-facing panel, which has the optimum tilt angle in a year. Across, the United States and south-facing panel it was analyzed that annual solar irradiation incident resulted in the irradiation increases of the 34% when relative to the fixed surface. Thus, there were the manual surface tilt changes that resulted in greater gains in irradiation.
Evaluation: The article was published in Applied Energy and there was the historical statistics, which analyzed the radiations of a solar panel within the year. It can be served as the great resource because analysis was done on finding the aspects, the data of the operations take place in the United States of America and the south-facing panel, which has the optimum tilt angle in a year, can be taken.
Comparison: While analyzing the article presented the model than the Perez radiation model because there is the deeper analysis, and while tilting the angles better results are known. The article is a factual piece because of draw conclusions from facts.
Effects of Dust on the Performance of PV Panels
Summary: The article “Effects of Dust on the Performance of PV Panels”, focused on the accumulation of dust that could be there from the outdoor environment, however, the solar photovoltaic (PV) system can naturally affect the solar panel because dust can reduce the future performance of the solar panels. The results, which are found in the paper, were not clearly quantified. The experiments focused on the using dust particles, which is conducted by the solar panels. Moreover, the constant-power light source was used through using artificial dust that can reduce the efficacy and surface of a photovoltaic solar panel. From the experiment, there was the reduction of solar panel seen by efficiency reduction by up to 50%.
Evaluation: While doing the evaluation of the paper, the article was published in “International Journal of Mechanical, Aerospace, Industrial, Mechatronic, and Manufacturing Engineering” and it is an extremely professional piece for the solar panel system because analyzed about the dust and performance. Thus, the article describes the constant irradiance that was there in solar PV panel due to dust, the experiment was done on peak power generated which was up to 18%. The experiments regarding a performance of solar panel can be helpful in future.
Comparison: I did the comparison of the two other sources with it, the article provides with the clear knowledge of solar panel performance. There context and analysis of experiment done with the statistics, the focus is in the greater irradiation because the results obtained focused on the performance of solar PV panel and tell about it is the highest performance, energy source but has the short lifespan.
Solar Irradiance Model for Solar Electric Panels and Solar Thermal Collectors in Lithuania
Summary: The article “Solar Irradiance Model for Solar Electric Panels and Solar Thermal Collectors in Lithuania” focus on the technology for the focus on renewable of the energy resources as there is the analysis of the wind power plants and the solar panels or cells, thus, there is the detailed analysis of electronic systems regarding the solar thermal collectors. Moreover, the mathematical models are focused with the clear sky standard and the calculation is shown in the paper. However, solar insolation values are determined in Lithuania.
Evaluation: While doing the evaluation of the paper, the article was published in “ELECTRONICS AND ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING” the article is useful because a focus on the geographical coordinates of Lithuania thus, there could be further analysis regarding the solar panel analysis of the electronic systems. This source could be helpful as it is analyzed that solar panels and the solar thermal collectors have the average value of ± 8%.
Comparison: While analyzing the article presented, there was the comparison of the other sources that have the solar panel or solar insolation values, but this was the only source that has solar insolation values are determined in Lithuania, the analysis done on 313 369 locations of Lithuania, which can be helpful in future.
