Summary about the research:
The dust impact on solar photovoltaic technology was investigated in the last seventy years as an essential problem facing solar energy technology. On our best knowledge, there is no general model to simulate dust impact. This paper proposed a model based on dust ingredients, which has been taking into consideration the dust impact on photovoltaic performance in a novel way. The outcomes demonstrate that the proposed model precisely anticipated the system performance and validated through experimental results. The new model is general for any dust type, anywhere on our planet or other planets in the universe as example dust in Mars. The information in this paper is worthwhile for researchers, designers, and investors interested in PV systems in dusty and desertic weather condition locations.
