The paper describes basic types of linear-mode power systems for simulating voltage/current characteristics of solar cells modules. Starting from a current source with a chain of diodes arranged in parallel (being the most simple equivalent circuit diagram of a solar power module) a very basic solar module simulator using a bipolar power transistor and… CONTINUE READING
