    Abstract

    This paper presents a methodology for photovoltaic (PV) systems model validation through outdoor measurements. The paper first summarizes a PV model published by the authors in [1] which allows to precisely reproduce the current-voltage relationship of an array of an arbitrary size from information available in manufactures' datasheets. The model is then validated through the methodology proposed herein under different PV panels configurations as well as under variable solar irradiance conditions.
