In this paper submerged photovoltaic systems (PVSs) are investigated with regard to the efficiency increase of PVS under high irradiance and ambient temperature; in particular, the optical and thermal effects are studied by means of experimental tests and mathematical models. The increment of efficiency through the cooling effects is evaluated. The PV panel performance of a submerged photovoltaic panel is investigated at different water depths. Experiments results on crystalline silicon panels are used to validate the models.

Abstract

In this paper submerged photovoltaic systems (PVSs) are investigated with regard to the efficiency increase of PVS under high irradiance and ambient temperature; in particular, the optical and thermal effects are studied by means of experimental tests and mathematical models. The increment of efficiency through the cooling effects is evaluated. The PV panel performance of a submerged photovoltaic panel is investigated at different water depths. Experiments results on crystalline silicon panels are used to validate the models.
