on photovoltaics at the Physics Department of the West University of
Timisoara has begun in 2000 and experienced an impressive development after
the commissioning of the Solar Platform in 2008. The main component of the
Solar Platform is the Solar Radiation Monitoring Station, the first
Romanian radiometric station outfitted for systematic monitoring solar
radiation on tilted surfaces.
Solar Energy Research Group is focused on three well defined fields: (1)
Modeling Solar Radiation at the Earth Surface; (2) Modeling the solar cells
operation; (3) Forecasting the output power production of PV systems.
The research team is consists
of nine members. The strength of the team stems from its diversity, being
formed of researchers specialized in very different domains: physics,
mathematics, statistics, astronomy and computer science.
