Comparision Analysis of Different Solar Photovoltaic Array Connections under Partial Shading Condition

Arnaan Ronghangpi, Jyoti Mahanta, Joram Henjum


Due to its high potential in renewable energy generation work, Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems are getting importance throughout the globe. Again, to study the PV system it is utmost important to know the modeling of the different components viz., PV cell, PV module and PV array along with its behaviour in different irradiance condition. In line with this, a detailed model is discussed in this paper, to simulate PV cell, module and Array. To construct an array, different types of connections such as Series, parallel, TCT and Bridge link connections are considered.
