ii. Connected the 24V AC power supply to the Power Input of Data Acquisition and Control Interface. iii. Connected the USB port of Data Acquisition and Control Interface to USB ports of the computer and turned on the 24V AC power supply for Data Acquisition and Control Interface unit. iv. Turned on the computer and started the data acquisition software LVDAC_EMS and selected the 240V and 50Hz as operating voltage and frequency. v. Turned off the fan, which would increase the PV panel temperature. IV. PROCEDURE: i. Measured the open-circuit voltage, short-circuit current and temperature of the single PV module (lower). Open-circuit voltage: 9.54V Short-circuit current: 94mA PV panel temperature: 45°C Percentage decrease in PV module voltage: 0.4% Percentage increase in PV module current: 0.07% ii. Connected the circuit as shown in Figure5 to determine the E-I curve of a PV module (lower). 9

Power Vs voltage V. CONCLUSION: In this experiment, the performance of solar panel in higher temperature is compared to the performance of lower temperature. The output voltage and power of higher temperature is low compared to the lower temperature, whereas the output current is slightly high. The output power of higher temperature is decreased even with increase in current, because of the change in voltage 11

(percentage of decrease) is higher compared to the change in current (percentage of increase). So that, change in voltage (percentage of decrease) and change in power (percentage of decrease) is almost equal. The PV panel temperature did not increase to more than 45°C due to threat of damaging the PV panel. As the temperature increases, the PV panel may get melting. So that, the higher temperature of the panel is set to 45°C and lower temperature of the panel to 41°C. 3. STORING ENERGY FROM SOLAR PANELS INTO BATTERIES I.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
