Malaysian Research on PV Module Reflectors

– Researchers at Multimedia University in Malaysia assess the economic feasibility of using mirror reflectors to enhance power yield in photovoltaic (PV) systems.

– The study includes a system prototype deployed at a sewage treatment site in Malaysia, demonstrating a 14.57% increase in PV power output with the reflector.

– The reflector-equipped system achieved a maximum efficiency of 25.5%, outperforming the reference system without a reflector (22.7% efficiency).

– Economic feasibility is measured using the cost-effectiveness factor (FCE), with an estimated FCE value of 0.955, suggesting that the proposed system is economically feasible under Malaysian climatic conditions.
