MATHEMATICAL MODELING OF MAXIMUM POWER OF SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS AND REGRESSION ANALYSIS FOR FIELD TEST CONDITIONS
Recent Population growth, urbanization and the introduction of numerous electrical appliances have given rise in the demand for electrical energy. The choice of a particular source of energy depends on a number of factors including cost of generation, availability of resources, environmental effects, among other considerations. The aim of this research is to develop a Mathematical model to predict current, Voltage and Power using the diode equivalent circuit and the characteristic obtained from the Datasheet as provided by the manufacturer under the Standard Test Conditions (STC). The photovoltaic of the PV modules type of PS-P310-36 mounted on top of stand situated at Galtimari Primary School Jere Local Government, Borno State, Nigeria was used. Also, Secant numerical method was used in solving resulting nonlinear equations. Likewise, the maximum value of Current, Voltage and Power were obtained and compared which gave errors -3.02%, 6.30% and 3.13% respectively. Furthermore, models that can be used to determine a field test condition were proposed which provide real answer to the user and may help in the design of these systems.
