Monocrystalline solar cell simulation

Energy and batteries

In the green energy field, the solar panels composed of bendable solar cells tend to significantly increase in popularity last time. The difficulty during the designing of the different devices (such as solar chargers, MPPT-controllers) emerges because of the strong lack of technical information about this kind of solar cell.  

In this article, the equivalent scheme of the bendable solar produced by the Sunpower company - Maxeon gen 5 and its coarse simulation model is proposed.

Via current adjusting of the current source of the proposed model one can set the power generated by the solar cell that directly depends on the latitude, where the solar panel is used, also on the season time and weather conditions. I.e. the current value of the current source of the proposed model correlates with ambient conditions of the photovoltaic cell exploit.
