Welcome to Edinburgh Napier Research Repository

The ‘Research Repository’ is the open access institutional repository of Edinburgh Napier University. It contains examples of research outputs produced by staff and research students, as well as related information about the university's funded projects and staff research interests.

Whenever possible, refereed documents accepted for publication, or finished artistic compositions presented in public, will be made available here in full digital format, and hyperlinks to standard published versions will be provided. Any questions about submissions to the repository or problems with access to any of its content should be sent to the Repository Team at repository@napier.ac.uk

Soiling mapping through optical losses for Nigeria (2022)
Journal Article
Chanchangi, Y. N., Ghosh, A., Micheli, L., Fernández, E. F., Sundaram, S., & Mallick, T. K. (in press). Soiling mapping through optical losses for Nigeria. Renewable Energy, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.renene.2022.07.019

Soiling consists of the accumulation of dust on the solar panel's surface and has a deleterious effect on solar photovoltaic devices' performance, which varies with location. However, soiling losses and rates are significantly under-reported or under... Read More about Soiling mapping through optical losses for Nigeria.
