dc.description.abstractThe aim of this paper is to present three years of an evaluation of the performance and degradation rate of three different crystalline silicon-based photovoltaic (PV) modules in the Saharan environment. The PV modules are: mc-Si (multi-crystalline), c_Si (mono-crystalline, back contacted) and HiT (heterojunction with intrinsic thin-layer); they are installed in Saida which is located at the proximity of Algeria’s Sahara. Two methods were used to calculate the degradation rate; the effective peak power of the PV modules and the temperature corrected performance ratio. It was found that the HIT technology performs worse than the other technologies with the highest degradation rate, ranging from -1.53%/year to -1.92%/year. The mc_Si PV and c_Si PV module technologies present a lower degradation rate than the HIT technology in the range of -0.74%/year to -0.83%/year and -0.58%/year to -0.79%/year respectively.
