Abstract: The rises in the populations and energy demand have encouraged the scientific researchers to investigate the renewable energies potential practically solar energy in the world. The solar rooftop Photovoltaic system is considered an alternative energy source for generating electricity for small households. Therefore, the main aim of this article is to research the possibility of using grid-connected PV system in Northern Cyprus with different urban locations. This study is focused on the use of PVGIS as simulation tool to analyze the performance of 110kW PV system also the comparison between various Photovoltaic technologies based on performance ratio. The result showed that the annual average performance ratio was varied from 75% to 80%. within the three types of PV technologies considered here, Cadmium telluride (CdTe) Photovoltaic system has the higher performance ratio except in Girne (35.337, 33.319) and Dipkarpaz (35.595, 34.379).
