    This book outlines the global opportunity to increase solar photovoltaic (PV) plant energy yields through modelling and analysis. Because it is endlessly available in Earth’s atmosphere, solar PV energy extraction is rising faster than all other renewable energy sources worldwide. Thus, technological improvements are needed to lower the cost of solar PV per watt every year. Since solar PV efficiency is low, modelling and analysis of boost converters, maximum power point tracing, solar PV cleaners, irradiation tracing systems, and panel tilt adjustments all help increase solar PV plant energy yield.

    Solar Photovoltaic System Modelling and Analysis covers topics such as:

    • Relevance, types, and growth rate of renewable resources
    • How solar PV systems generate electricity
    • Panel varieties and their importance
    • Solar PV designs and architectures
    • Charge controllers, including the latest technologies
    • Boost converter modelling and analysis in MATLAB
    • The necessity of hybrid power plants (modelling and analysis)
    • Designing a solar PV system including panel selection for a specific application, as well as converter and inverter estimation
