OPTIMUM TILT ANGLE AND ORIENTATION FOR SOLAR COLLECTORS IN PALESTINE
Baha’a Al Haj

The tilt angle is considered one of the major factors that affect the amount of irradiance which the solar collectors absorb in order to make electricity. The optimum tilt angle that was obtained from our work in the previous project Using softwares like PVSyst, SAM other softwares with data collected from satellites has been used to increase the efficiency to its maximum values for yearly mounting for Palestine in general. For this project, two methods were used, first the mathematical model in which Matlab software has been used to calculate the optimum tilt angle to for monthly, seasonally and yearly mountings for each of the cities in Palestine and calculating the efficiency and the need for each change. Secondly, a practical method in which we build a live-system to gather actual data and use it as a feedback for our work.
