Abstract
A solar cell is an electrical device that converts light into an electric current. Electron-hole pairs are generated inside the solar cell when light is absorbed. A two diodes equivalent model is used to describe the electronic properties of solar cells. The open-circuit voltage (Voc) is created by the series resistance and the shunt resistant of the solar cell. The theme of modeling is based on the solar radiation, temperature of system and environment to determine the effect of cell parameters like photo generated current, saturation current, series resistance, shunt resistance and ideality factor on the performance of the solar cell. In this paper we study the influence of temperature, series resistance and shunt resistance on the current-voltage (I-V) characteristics simulated in Matlab / Simulink.
