“Lambert W function-based technique to estimate and compare the performance of partially shaded series-parallel and total-cross-tied configured PV array”

Niti Agrawal

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 08 March 2024

  Partial shading condition (PSC) has a detrimental effect on the output performance of a photovoltaic (PV) system. The output performance of a partially shaded PV array depends not only on the pattern, intensity and location of the shadow but also on its configuration. In this paper, the output performance ...  Read More
