The paper describes
the research given on exploitation of a portable PV system designated to provide electric power for nomadic campuses in Mongolia. The locations are featured low temperatures and humidity.
The portable system consists of a PV module, comprising a PV panel with rated output of 204 W and leg block, charge controller, inverter, two lead-acid batteries of 12V, 70 Ah and also data acquisition unit. The system is rated at a load of approximately 280 Wh/day that provides electric power for radio, television, incandescent and fluorescent lamps.
Yearly average in-plane irradiance varies from 4.71 to 4.88 kWh/m2 per day. Due to higher electric power demand and lower irradiance during winter season, disconnection losses are lower in winter and higher in summer time.
