Estimation of Photovoltaic Cells Model Parameters using Particle Swarm Optimization
Swarm intelligence based technique has been used in this work for the estimation of parameters of photovoltaic cells using the two-diode model of the photovoltaic cell. Particle Swarm Optimization algorithm was used to fit the calculated current–voltage characteristics of the photovoltaic cells to the experimental one. The estimated parameters were the generated photocurrent, saturation currents, series resistance, shunt resistance and ideality factors. The proposed approach was validated using industrial photovoltaic cells.
