Photovoltaic (PV) cells are converters that produce dc (direct current) power by absorbing photons from the sun. However, the amount of generated power may vary depending on the production technology of the PV panel and the atmospheric conditions where the panels are installed. A small power generation difference due to an improperly selected PV technology can reach serious rates on a weekly, monthly and annual basis. For this reason, it is important to make PV panel power measurements before installation on location basis. In this study, a total of 8 PV panels in 4 different technologies, each in pairs, (Monocrystalline, PolyCrystalline, Copper Indium SelenideCIS and Cadmium Telluride-CdTe), were measured in January 2020, with a circuit board where MOSFET is used as an electronic load. In this study, it is observed that Monocrystalline PV panels are generated the highest power value, according to the selected seven-day. In addition, it is determined that PolyKristalline PV panels reach the second highest power value. The third highest power is generated by CIS PV panels also it is observed that the lowest power is generated by CdTe FV panels.
