The paper concerns simulation of photovoltaic systems. First, the characteristics of a real photovoltaic module, based on real life measurements, are presented. The peculiar behavior that is due to partial shading and bypass diodes is pointed out. Then a PSpice computer model is outlined, and the computer simulations serve to understand the observed… (More)
