The operation of a photovoltaic (PV) array under partial shading (PS) conditions represents a great challenge in the PV systems. The PS of a PV array causes a reduction of the generated power of such array and increases the thermal losses inside the shaded modules. This paper presents the gravitational search algorithm (GSA) to optimally fully reconfigure the PV array with the purpose of reducing the PS losses. The single diode PV model is used to model the PV module. The GSA code is built… CONTINUE READING
