Beskrivning av examensarbetet
Bakgrund/Background:
Agrivoltaic systems are photovoltaic systems that combine electricity production and farm activities. As compared to ground-based photovoltaic systems, agrivoltaic systems present several advantages: higher electricity yield, crop yield and water savings as compared to common practices. The combination of revenues can lead to high land use efficiency and shorter payback time. A task in the project “Evaluation of the first agrivoltaic system in Sweden” is to further develop an accurate 3D thermal model for bifacial PV modules. A preliminary model was developed in 2020 by Felix Johansson http://www.diva-portal.org/smash/record.jsf?pid=diva2%3A1566504&dswid=7497. The developed model was focused on the single PV modules, but we are planning to extend it to analyze the entire agrivoltaic system. This thesis proposal is related to this current project: https://www.mdh.se/en/malardalen-university/research/research-projects/evaluation-of-the-first-agrivoltaic-system-in-sweden
Uppgift/Task:
The aim of this thesis is to further develop a 3D computational fluid dynamic model of a bifacial PV agrivoltaic system to study its thermal performances. The thermal model will be validated with real time measurements from the first agrivoltaic system installed in Sweden.
