The need for the usage of signal processing and pattern recognition techniques to monitor photovoltaic (PV) arrays and to detect and respond to faults with minimal human involvement is increasing. The data obtained from the array can be used to dynamically modify the array topology and improve array power output. This is beneficial especially when module mismatches such as shading, soiling and aging occur in the PV array. A robust statistics-based fault detection algorithm to find faulty… CONTINUE READING
