Recently, sustainable energy resources that contribute the reduction of CO2 emission are in the spotlight all over the world in order to solve a serious problem of global warming and exhaustion of fossil fuels. The photovoltaic generation is expected to bring about the reduction of CO2 emission, and the Japanese government has decided that the total installed capacity of PV generation would be 53GW by 2030. However, the photovoltaic generation is required the large space to install PV panels compared with other renewable energy resources. Therefore, we must determine the proper installation and the usage of PV panels in the limited space to operate the photovoltaic generation most effectively and to improve its efficiency. In this study, we have investigated the characteristics of the photovoltaic generation obtained and have determined the optimal installation of PV panels and improved the efficiency of the photovoltaic generation.
