Comparison of Predictive Models for Photovoltaic Module Performance: Preprint

William Marion

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


This paper examines three models used to estimate the performance of photovoltaic (PV) modules when the irradiances and PV cell temperatures are known. The results presented here were obtained by comparing modeled and measured maximum power (Pm) for PV modules that rely on different technologies.
