A comprehensive parametric model of a flexible PV (FPV) array has been developed leading to optimal operation under dynamic and extreme environmental conditions. The model considers the impact of various non-uniform environmental conditions and installation layouts on the performance of flexible FPV modules. For contoured layouts, the Power Voltage (P-V) characteristics of FPV module show multiple peaks around the maximum power region, which fails established tracking algorithms. The power… CONTINUE READING
