In this study, we worked on the modelling and the simulation of atmospheric conditions impact on photovoltaic production in Saint Louis area. Using Ineichen's model based on the disorder factor of Link, an assessment of sunshine in the study area was made. A characterization of the irradiation is elaborated by modelling the radiation and by simulating outputs of a photovoltaic power plant. We can estimate aerosols impact on photovoltaic production in the river area thanks to results obtained. We evaluated the sunshine rate of this area by using the modelling process. We chose an irradiation model to estimate the outputs of a photovoltaic power plant subjected to an atmosphere disturbed by aerosols. This work enabled us to set up a system of alerts and specific warnings for populations benefiting from this type of resource.
Key words: Photovoltaic output, atmosphere, aerosol, sunshine, alert, Saint Louis area.
