Paper Abstract

The main object of this paper is to identify solar panel installation configurations to achieve optimum system performance irrespective of installation surface configurations. It is important to mention that the panel installation requirements are strictly dependent on the roof configurations, Northern and Southern hemispherical locations, and the latitudes of the installation locations. Panel installation schemes for flat roof, inclined roof, inverted V-shape roof and other roof configurations are briefly discussed. Potential tracking concepts, tracking algorithms, and controllers are identified.
