One of the frequent circumstances in photovoltaic (PV) systems is partial shading, often characterized by multiple peaks in its characteristics. As a result, modelling and delivering peak power is strenuous. Analytical techniques are well-known effective instruments to overcome such challenges by establishing
correlations between variables with the help of non-linear implicit mathematical equations. With an aim to simplify these models, earlier research has focussed on formulating explicit equations by making assumptions/approximations, leading to less accurate results. With today’s fast processing computers, solving nonlinear equations is no longer a problem. Moreover, the application of analytical techniques has only been limited to study uniform shading conditions. Thus, there is a need to research more on how mathematical methods can be employed to ease the solution of partial shading conditions.
