Abstract

This paper is performed to investigate the performance of dual-axis solar tracking system with maximum light detection for off-grid telecommunication towers under weather conditions in Malaysia. The studied system consists of High-efficiency heterojunction intrinsic thin (HIT) film solar modules coupled with state-of-the-art dual-axis maximum light detection (MLD) solar tracking system. The investigation method is based on the analyzed the daily actual data record for both the average power output of the photovoltaic system and the state of charge of batteries in four months under different weather conditions as a function of time. Based on the results obtained the use of HIT solar modules with MLD dual axis solar tracking system has high performance effective under Malaysian weather. The study also presented the detailed investigated system description.
