Thévenin Equivalent of Solar Cell Model

Abstract (Summary)

This thesis considers the problem of determining impedance parameters of a solar

cell in operation. Typically, solar cell devices are characterized by the manufacturer

using empirical data prior to placing the solar cell in use. There are a number of

solar cell degeneration mechanisms that are of interest to measure or detect. Therefore,

active measurement of solar cell impedance parameters periodically over time

is advantageous. We propose a methodology developed from a Thévenin equivalent

model of a typical solar cell. This method allows periodic updating of the solar cell’s

parameters which can be used to update the cells characterization and/or monitor

degradation of the cell.
