1. Design a Solar Farm 1-1. Selection of Geographic Location According to National Climatic Data Center, the sunniest state is Arizona in United Sates, which is 193 clear days pre year.(1) Yuma City where in Arizona State has 313 days of sunshine. This climatic condition is good for solar power generation. In order to reduce the environment impact, a desert region is a proper choice. There are two more benefits. The cost of land is much cheaper then urban area. In addition, there is no any shelter nearby. Nevertheless, solar farms have to be maintained regularly. If install a solar farm at an isolated location, it will be hard to maintenance. A location of photovoltaic farm has been chosen as Figure 2. It is situated in a desert region for decreasing the environment impact and next to a road for maintenance easily. Figure 1. Map of United States(2) Figure 2. Location of photovoltaic farm(2) 1-2. Selection of Photovoltaic Module In this assignment, the solar cell module that made by Neo Solar Power (NSP) will be chosen. NSP is one of the biggest solar cell manufacturers in the world. It produces high-quality and high-efficiency solar cell modules. The key specifications(3) of D6M_B3A 255W photovoltaic module are: - Maximum power voltage: 30.09V - Maximum power current: 8.48A - Module efficiency: 15.7% - Maximum power output: 255W - Temperature coefficient of Pmax: -0.427%/°C (From 20°C) Figure 3. Dimensions of D6M_B3A 255W Photovoltaic Module 1-3. A unit of
