Double-Exponential Model of a Photovoltaic Cell with Temperature Dependence

Alena Okhorzina, Norbert Bernhard, Alexey Yurchenko

Abstract: The purpose of the research is the creation of mathematical models in MATLAB based on the double exponential model of the photovoltaic cell. The developed model allows for different physical and environmental parameters. An equivalent circuit of the model includes a photocurrent source, two diodes, and a series and parallel resistance. The paper presents the simulation results for each parameter. The simulation data are displayed graphically and numerical results are saved in a file.

Keywords: double-exponential model, photovoltaic cell, Simulink
