Abstract

This paper presents a detailed method for creating an embedded Matlab model in Simulink for any solar photovoltaic panel starting with its datasheet values. It links extrinsic functions to the Simulink embedded model to provide fast and simple iterative solving of non-linear equations. It also provides a method sufficiently flexible to produce a model output based on panel current or voltage such that it can be cascaded with different Simulink elements.
