Abstract—The regions of Sahara provide a very important solar resource, trying countries to move towards the production of photovoltaic energy. But operating systems are installed in a hostile environment and equipment is more vulnerable than in the north. This paper deals with the failure mechanisms of photovoltaic system and highlights the effect of competing risk of breakdowns initiated by severe weather in the south. The effect of the sandstorm is not often discussed in the literature, for this a special interest has been given to this phenomenon in this paper. The work developed in this paper was initiated following our understanding of the interest granted by a group of countries from the Maghreb and from Europe to develop green energy in the DESERTEC project, considered of regional significance.

Index Terms—photovoltaic system, saharan region, failure mechanisms, degradation
