This paper presents the results obtained testing a tool designed to characterize and simulate the behavior of a Photovoltaic (PV) panel under real and/or simulated working conditions. The presented tool permits the continuous monitoring of the I-V (Current-Voltage) and P-V (Power-Voltage) characteristics of the panel and the comparison between actual and expected performance; in this way it is possible to prevent any possible decrease of the output power and to replace the monitored module before it goes out of order or its efficiency falls under a given threshold.

Abstract

This paper presents the results obtained testing a tool designed to characterize and simulate the behavior of a Photovoltaic (PV) panel under real and/or simulated working conditions. The presented tool permits the continuous monitoring of the I-V (Current-Voltage) and P-V (Power-Voltage) characteristics of the panel and the comparison between actual and expected performance; in this way it is possible to prevent any possible decrease of the output power and to replace the monitored module before it goes out of order or its efficiency falls under a given threshold.
