3.4.1 Shading Factor

Course subject(s) Module 3. Introduction to Location Issues

In this section we investigate the influence of the surrounding lanscape on the performance of a pv system. The shade cast by an external object changes during the day and over the course of the year. In this video you will learn how to measure and model the effect of shading by external objects on pv modules.
