Abstract

Solar panels are exposed to high speed winds in coastal and tropical regions which causes damage to PV cells. In order to mitigate effects of wind load it becomes essential to mount air deflectors. The present work investigates the effect of flat and curved air deflectors under real time wind flow conditions on solar panel support structure. The CAD model of solar panel support structure is developed using Creo design software and CFD analysis is conducted using ANSYS CFX. The comparative analysis of three design configurations i.e. solar panel without deflector, with flat deflector and with curved deflectors is made on the basis of drag force, lift force generated. The usage of deflectors resulted in significant reduction of drag force and lift force generated on solar panel.
