Abstract: The aim of this study is the evaluation of a photovoltaic system at different locations in Algeria. We have calculated the system efficiency, the solar energy captured by the system and the electrical energy output. An economic study of a photovoltaic station has been done by estimating the cost of this project operating for a period of 25 years. To achieve this goal, we have selected four regions of the Algerian territory, differing in their climatological parameters: Algiers, Constantine, Oran and Tamanrasset. The measured monthly global solar radiation and temperatures values are taken during six years (2000-2005) from the different meteorological stations. The obtained results have revealed that the calculated electrical power for Tamanrasset was the highest one (3581kWh), the best efficiency was in Constantine (10.3%), however the lowest cost of the project was in Algie4rs and Oran (769.7kDZ).
