Among Renewable Energy Sources, the solar energy represents an attractive alternative solution to traditional sources because is available everywhere; moreover, photovoltaic (PV) modules are nowadays becoming more and more attractive as the price per watt of the photovoltaic modules is decreasing. The output voltage furnished by a PV module is quite low; therefore, a series connection of different modules has to be employed in order to obtain a sufficient output dc voltage. In non-uniform… CONTINUE READING
