The behavior of a photovoltaic (PV) module may be captured via its current-voltage (I-V) characteristic. The single-diode model is able to adequately fit this characteristic while featuring limited parameterization difficulty, and is thus widely adopted to represent the performance of a PV module. However, the identification of the model's parameters is a complex task due to the nonconvex nature of the underlying optimization problem. In this paper, an efficient method for the parameter… CONTINUE READING
