Abstract—Commonly installed solar panels have several deficiencies. One of the common problems is its fluctuating output caused by its high temperature and low amount of sun irradiation. This fluctuation can be minimized using a better cooling system. In this study, the cooling system tested is water cooling. We float a solar panel above the water to decrease its temperature. When the solar panel’s temperature decreases, its output will be more stable. The experiment is conducted at Universitas Indonesia’s lake during noon.
