Abstract: Bifacial solar modules promise an increased energy yield, compared to systems with standard, monofacial panels, and also offer new opportunities with regard to the installation. One particular approach is the vertical mounting of PV modules, which is reported to be an effective measure to avoid soiling or dust deposition and is an option to obtain a broadened energy generation profile. In spite of the general interest in this type of installation, the amount of published data is very limited, especially with regard to arrays, for which pronounced shading effects can be expected. In this work we present an analysis of the energy yield and the respective losses for arrays of vertically mounted bifacial solar modules with varied installation conditions.
