Résumé
The tilt angle is one of the most important parameters that affect harvesting the maximum solar radiation on the solar PV panels. This angle is site dependent and follows the daily change of the sun path. The accurate determination of the optimum tilt angle for a location is essential to get maximum energy production by the solar system. There are some methods that have been used for determining the tilt angle depending on the day number of the year and solar radiation falls on the panel. The main objective of this thesis is to optimize the tilt angle for various cities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, namely, Riyadh, Jeddah, Madinah, Tabouk, Al-Jouf, Abha and Gizan . The data of these main cities will be taken from NASA which provides data for horizontal solar radiation based on satellite readings. The tilt angles will be optimized and compared within different time spans i.e. monthly, seasonally and yearly adjustment of the PV panel. Results of optimum tilt angles will be compared with NASA optimum tilt angles given.
