Engineering >> Electrical EngineeringIV Curve and Maximum Power of a Solar Panelby Khaled Mougharbel
Submitted : Fall 2010 This project proposes a method to calculate unknown values of photovoltaic curve with limited known parameters. The IV curve had three important parameters: open circuit, maximum power, and short circuit. The project presented this equation and the goal was to evaluate for the unknown parameter I_{1} , I_{0}, and B. To evaluate the equation at its maximum voltage and amperage, differentiate the equation and set it equal to zero, then solve for I_{0}. The unknown parameters: I_{1} =2.54 A, I_{0}= 2.31_{ }A and, B=0.034.
