Abstract
In this paper a brief overview of the major PV technologies is given. The technology used in the production of the photovoltaic cells, the efficiency, and where possible the lifetime of the cells are highlighted. A list of the leading manufacturers of photovoltaic modules for the year 2012 is provided. Modeling of the PV modules is carried out using the four parameter model of the solar cell. A simulation of the model is carried out using Simulink software. The model is validated with the aid of the Kyocera KC85T high efficiency module datasheet. An array is formed from the module by connecting six of the modules in series to give a higher power output. This is one of the most common configurations in roof-mounted, pole-mounted, and ground-mounted photovoltaic arrays. The performance of the model was found to be satisfactory.
