Abstract

One of the crucial factors that affect the popularity of photovoltaic module is its relatively low efficiency. Until today, commercially available photovoltaic module efficiency claimed by manufacturers is from 6 to 16?%. However, the claimed efficiency is at a temperature of 25 °C. In reality, especially for countries with hot weather, their ambient temperature during a sunny day would be more than 35 °C. The rising of the PV temperature will result in the drop of module efficiency. By calculation, it was concluded that, for typical silicon-based PV, the efficiency of the cell would decrease 0.5?% with 1 °C increase in temperature [1].
