Abstract:This paper shows a practical comparison of the project planning of a grid connected photovoltaic system with bifacial solar modules with an east west orientation and a saltwater storage systems. First is the Data collection to evaluate the performance of a PV system the knowledge of the load profile. Second is the Solar irradiation and plant design. The Frankfurt University of Applied Science connects high-resolution 3D photos with the cadastral land of the property registers The lay-out on self-consumption and autarky is compared to verify an optimum for a single-family household. The saltwater battery seems to be a promising alternative to lithium-ion batteries. A different study shall be consulted for the planning as a comparison and then be carried out in a practical plant.

Keywords:Cellular approach, solar bifacial module, electrical energy storage, saltwater battery
