Hi I would like to know how does one model a solar PV module in Simulink? I have found the standard solar cell component in the Simulink Library and have connected them in series, but would like to know how do i give them irradiance and how do i measure the complete model?

ANY help will be valued

Thank you

Thank you very much :)

This webinar showed exactly (on big scale) what i need to do. Do you maybe know how to create that box inside where the solar cells are connected and how do you simulate the irradiance?

Thank you for your assistance
