Abstract

Solar cell is a source of electrical energy derived from solar energy. This energy source utilizes sunlight absorbed by the PV Module and then transformed into electrical energy. The research stage begins with the preparation of the tool; the next stage is constructing a heat discharger made of aluminum plate which is given a cooling fin of aluminum material with a thickness of 0.3mm. After that it is affixed to the back side of the PV module. Data collection method is conducted by taking hourly data for 7 hours with different solar intensities every hour and displayed in tabular form. From the results of research data conducted for 3 days, data obtained on average value of the temperature difference between module 1 that does not use a cooling system and module 2 that uses a cooling system is 1.470C, the difference in voltage is 1.06 volts and the difference in current strength is 0.05 Amp. Thus it can be concluded that by applying a cooling system to the PV module the module temperature will be cooler, and the voltage on the PV module using the cooling system is higher than the PV module which is not used cooling system. To the contrary the current strength in the cooled PV module is slightly lower in value compared to strong currents in modules that do not use a cooling system.
