Abstract

A mounting system is one of an integral feature of any installation. Meanwhile, a solar photovoltaic mounting system is a system where we used to fix solar panel on surfaces like roofs or empty plots. It is the base of the solar system where a good base ensures the efficiency of the overall system and a return on investment. There are several types of solar photovoltaic mounting system such as ground mounting, pole mounting, roofs mounting and so on. As the world become technologically advanced, the solar photovoltaic mounting system installation cost nowadays become incredibly high. Also, the system occurs to be very complicated and difficult to be installed. The aim of this project is to develop a solar photovoltaic mounting system for a flat roof in a hot climate. This project will focus on the designation structure and development of a new system which are very simple, easily installed and providing a low installation cost mounting system. In this project, the structural strength of the solar photovoltaic mounting system will be also analyzed. The design structure will be drawn by using SOLIDWORKS and SPACECLAIM ENGINEER software. While for the process of analyzing the design proposed, a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) simulation was conducted by using Solid Thinking INSPIRE software. This software is a concept generation tool which capable to perform linear static analysis which in this project is the displacement, von misses stress and the factor of safety.
