Abstract

 Abstract

In order to determine what type of photovoltaic solar module could best be used in a thermoelectric photovoltaic power generation. Changing in powers due to higher temperatures (25oC, 35oC, and 45oC) have been done for three types of solar modules: monocrystalline , polycrystalline, and copper indium gallium (di) selenide (CIGS). The Prova 200 solar panel analyzer is used for the professional testing of three solar modules at different ambient temperatures; 25oC, 35oC, and 45oC and solar radiation range 100-1000 W/m2. Copper indium gallium (di) selenide module   has the lowest power drop (with the average percentage power drop 0.38%/oC) while monocrystalline module has the highest power drop (with the average percentage power drop 0.54%/oC), while polycrystalline module has a percentage power drop of 0.49%/oC.

Keywords: Energy gap, PV modules, PV power, Temperature dependence.
