Example A house owner in Champaign, IL (at 88 deg W longitude and 40 deg N latitude) installed a solar PV panel (10 m 2 ) for his home. The panel is set on roof facing south and titled at 40 deg. What is the power of the PV panel at 3:00 pm CST on Feb. 21? Assuming the efficiency of the PV panel is 15%. Solution: Champaign, IL (40 deg N, 88 deg W) From Table 7-2 : On Feb. 21, EOT = -13.9 min, δ = -10.8°, A = 1187 W/m 2 , B = 0.142 LCT = local standard time - (L L -L S )*(4min/deg) = 3:00 p.m. -(88-90)*4 = 3:08 p.m. LST = LCT + EOT = 3:08 p.m. + (-13.9min) = 2:54 p.m. H = 2*15° + 54/4 = 43.5° Sin β = cos L cos H cos δ + sin L sin δ = cos(40°)cos(43.5°)cos(-10.8°)+sin(40°)sin(-10.8°)=0.5458-0.1204 =0.4254 β = 25.2° cos Φ = ( sin δ cosL-cos δ sinLcosH)/cos β = (sin(-10.8°)cos(40°)-cos(-10.8°) sin(40°) cos(43.5°))/cos(25.2°)
