ABSTRACT

A photovoltaic array (PVA) simulation model to be used in Matlab-Simulink GUI environment is developed and presented in this paper. The model is developed using basic circuit equations of the photovoltaic (PV) solar cells including the effects of solar irradiation and temperature changes. The new model was tested using a directly coupled dc load as well as ac load via an inverter. Test and validation studies with proper load matching circuits are simulated and results are presented here.

    • "The electrical system powered by the PV array requires DC–DC converter due to the varying nature of the generated solar power, resulting from sudden changes in weather conditions as shown in Table 3, which change the solar irradiation level as well as cell operating temperature. An equivalent circuit model of photovoltaic cell with low step-up DC– DC converter is shown in Fig. 4. The PV array is developed by the basic equations of photovoltaic cells including the effects of temperature changes and solar irradiation level [20] [21] [22]. The output voltage of the PV cell is a function of photo current that is mainly determined by load current depending on the solar irradiation level. "
