• Number of PV cells 729
  • Maximum Electrical Power 24 W
  • Access Local or Remote
The solar PV/thermal panel and all electronics in this system have been specifically designed for the SUNTRAP project.
a) PV panel made of 729 10 x 10 mm2 solar cells each equipped with an optical parabolic concentrator. The panel is electrically divided in three sub-panels.
b) The electronics system comprises of: data measurement and logging system with remote internet-accessible data displayed from database (based on Raspberry PI); triple-channel dc-dc MPPT converter (one per sub-panel); I-V curve tracer (periodically measuring the I-V electrical characteristic of each sub-panel).
c) thermocouples, pumps and water tank to store heat and collect thermal data.
