The cost and the performance of PV plants strongly depends on modules. However, the electrical parameters of the modules can be different from those provided by the manufacturer; moreover, such parameters can change as the module is getting older. Therefore, the behavior of the mathematical model of a PV module can-t match the real operating conditions. The paper proposes an improved model of a PV module that make use only parameters provided by manufacturers datasheets without requiring the… CONTINUE READING
