# Simple Solar Cell And Panel Model

### Thibaut Leroy (view profile)

Simple function for I/V and P/V calculation for a Sunpower solar cell, frequently used in solar cars

File Information
Description

May 2011, tested on MATLAB R2010A

A simple function with a quick graph extraction on Excel from Sunpower's datasheets.
Made for A300 Sunpower's cells and panel, but easy to modify for other Silicons cells (amorphous, crystalline...)

Based on published code by Francisco M. González-Longatt, "Model of Photovoltaic Module in MatlabTM", 2DO CONGRESO IBEROAMERICANO DE ESTUDIANTES DE INGENIERÍA ELÉCTRICA, ELECTRÓNICA Y COMPUTACIÓN (II CIBELEC 2005)

MATLAB release MATLAB 7.10 (R2010a)
Other requirements Microsoft Excel 2007 or more.

This is very nice work, but I am working on Solarex MSX-60 module. I need Excel file of MSX-60 module badly. Do you have any idea how I can find that ?

@Hossein: It's a reproduction of the Current/Voltage nominal curve from Datasheet.
The 1.665V value is Open Voltage (0.665) + 1V to have a large range because of low temperature effect. It can be less, but 0.665V is not enough.

would you please explain the excel data?
what is the first and second column?
and why you define the voltage in this range?(0 to 1.665)

Regards,

You've to run SimpleSolarCellAndPanelModel.m, does it solve your problem?
solar.m is just the external calculation function, but you can use it in your own scripts.
