Designing of 3MW Floating Photovoltaic Power System and its Benefits over Other PV Technologies
Keywords:Floating Photovoltaic, Anchoring, Cooling effect, Evaporation.
Renewable energy power generation should be more specific of what type of energy does it need to be used to cater to the demand of consumers. This should be more reliable, economical and efficient with making maximum benefit towards the environment. This research is based on Floating Photovoltaic Technology and the author has designed a 3MW FPV system, which it was then compared with other PV technologies developed around the world, and it was mainly analyzed by simulation results obtained by PVSyst software interface and using actual climatic data from NASA. Therefore, it was proved that the author designed the system generates more power compared to other methods and it gives more environmental benefits compared to other topologies. This system will give solutions to the problem of a negative impact on the environment with PV energy as it only uses water surface to integrate the PV.
