HW #3 Solutions 1. Compare the total purchase cost of a nominally 2.5 kW (peak) photovoltaic system for the following three choices of solar modules: Assume Peak intensity of 1kW/m^2 a) First generation crystalline silicon modules of 15% energy conversion efficiency at a projected cost of $240/m^2 Cell_Area 2.5 kW 1m 2 kW 1 15% 16.67m 2 Cell_Cost 16.67m 2 240 dollars m 2 4 000 dollars , Assume total system cost is 60% above cell cost System_Cost Cell_Cost 1.6 6 400 dollars , b) Second generation thin film modules of 10% conversion efficiency at a projected cost of $50/m^2 Cell_Area 2.5 kW 1m 2 kW 1 10% 25 m 2 Cell_Cost 25m 2 50 dollars m 2 1250 dollars Assume total system cost is 60% above cell cost System_Cost Cell_Cost 1.6 2 000 dollars , c) Third generation polymer modules of 50% conversion efficiency at a projected cost of $80/m^2 Cell_Area 2.5 kW 1m 2 kW 1 50% 5m 2
