Abstract: In this paper, we present a new approach of comprehensive MATLAB/Simulink simulator for photovoltaic generator based on a three-diode equivalent circuit, taking in consideration seven parameters and it needs only the parameters presented in the data sheet by the manufacturer. For characterisation of any photovoltaic generator, the simulator supports a large array combination with high accuracy. The results obtained by the simulator are compared with previously published simulator and the experimental data. The proposed work can be very useful for photovoltaic (PV) professionals and developers that can be interfaced with different kind of maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithms and power electronic converters, and its present capability with partial shading conditions (PSC).
