The paper considers photovoltaic (PV) systems, which are one of the most promising systems of renewable energy sources. The electricity produced by PV panels has great potential, but also has technological shortcomings that do not allow obtaining maximum efficiency. The aim of our study is to reduce technological shortcomings, which will increase the service life of PV systems and the amount of electricity received. The obtained model allows considering the technical parameters that take into account the heat loss and thermal resistance of the absorber plate. The results of the calculations performed coincide with the experimental data. The main aim of the proposed research is to consider a method for increasing the efficiency and lifetime of PV systems. This article briefly presents theoretical methods for increasing the efficiency of such systems, as well as increasing the service life, by simulating the cooling parameters of the absorber surface of such systems and tracking the maximum power. Modeling and the obtained theoretical model will allow in the future to select the most suitable technical solutions for the maximum energy output of PV systems for various design solutions.
