Keywords:Solar, Photovoltaic, Stress, Deformation, Strain, waves, Solar photovoltaic systems, solar support, unusual structural loads, standalone
Solar PV systems is a new type of energy that is being developed for use in ships in recent years. However, Solar photovoltaics are affected by many kinds of loads such as static loads and wind loads and it is important for designers to take into account the amount of stress (due to wind loads) experienced by the solar PV systems. In this paper, structural deformation of standalone, solar tracker, and module support of the photovoltaic system were analyzed under different wind-wave loads. Based on von Mises criterion, no structural failure (yielding/plastic deformation) is predicted to take place in all the solar PV systems reviewed in this paper under the given loading conditions.
