solar pv efficiency -Polycrystalline vs. Monocrystalline PV solar panel performance – Cool weather test

May 3, 2013 – 3:28 am

Comparing the performance ** cool temperature of monocrystalline vs polycrystalline photovoltaic solar panels. I ordered 3 of these panels 135W and one came as polycry …

  2. Great – I love making something really useful…but rather than spend 7hrs charging a battery I’d prefer to just do an hours overtime and spend the other six in bed!

  3. why does kyocera poly performs better ?

  4. this is related to a second degree effect of the material, which can be idealized with the temperature coeficients on the datasheets

  5. In general yes, but there are various grades of both mono and poly. For instance, Kyocera Poly outperforms many mono panels of the same watt rating. Good question.

  6. I read that MONO is supposed to perform better in hot weather, isn’t it?

  7. Interesting comparison…looks too close to call at the moment. Maybe the Summer data will show a clear winner? Love the time elapse stuff in your videos
