on photovoltaics at the Physics Department of the West University of
Timisoara has begun by 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.
the 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 energy production of PV systems.
consists of eight researchers. 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.
