Partial shading is the condition of having different insolation levels at different parts of a photovoltaic structure. This structure can be a module, array or farm. The difference in insolation levels causes miss-match in the elements of the photovoltaic structure. This miss-match has undesirable effects such as reduction in generated power from the elements of the structure and hot spots inside the structure. The severity of these effects can be considerably reduced by reconnecting the… CONTINUE READING
