Energy has a vital importance on the behalf of social and economic development. In more recent times and nowadays, solar power has been getting more important in the sense of its high flexibility and reliability when the potential of the MENA Region and geopolitical location of Turkey are considered. Photovoltaic (PV) technology has the largest share among the other solar technologies and in the regard of reliability of PV panels, accumulated Aeolian dust and dirt reduce system performance. Thus, this study intentionally aims to focus on efficiency and productivity of the panels associated with their periodical cleaning. For this purpose, voltage and current measures were scaled and fluctuant total outputs were observed. In accordance with the results, it is able to be asserted that cleaning of regarding PV modules is essentially needed. By doing so, overall productivity is being increased while operational lifetime of the entire power plant can be prolonged as well as avoiding degradation.
Enerji, sosyal ve ekonomik kalkınma için hayati bir öneme sahiptir. MENA Bölgesi'nin potansiyeli ve Türkiye'nin jeopolitik konumu düşünüldüğünde, son zamanlarda ve günümüzde yüksek esneklik ve güvenilirlik anlamında güneş enerjisi daha da önem kazanmaktadır. Fotovoltaik (PV) teknolojisi, diğer güneş enerjisi teknolojileri arasında en büyük paya sahiptir ve PV panellerinin güvenilirliği açısından, biriken Aeolian tozu ve kir, sistem performansını düşürür. Bu nedenle, bu çalışma, kasıtlı olarak, periyodik temizliği ile ilişkili panellerin verimliliği ve üretkenliğine odaklanmayı amaçlamaktadır. Bu amaçla gerilim ve akım ölçüleri ölçeklendirilmiş ve dalgalı toplam çıktılar gözlemlenmiştir. Elde edilen sonuçlara göre, PV modülleri ile ilgili temizliğin esasen gerekli olduğu söylenebilir. Böylelikle, genel üretkenlik artırılırken, tüm santralin çalışma ömrü uzatılabildiği gibi bozulma önlenebilir
