Photovoltaic (PV) production systems are facing various issues during the partial shading conditions (PSCs). This can in turn affect the maximum production of power and the proficiency or capability of the system. By reducing the imbalance in power losses during considered partial shading conditions, the primary centre of attention of this research work is to model and replicate various PV array configurations as a way to extricate the maximum power production, and to analyze the output characteristics and to examine and compare the competence efficiency of PV array configurations under the same. In this work performance of basic PV, array configurations are compared with the performance of hybrid configurations. The maximum power generated, fill factors, shading losses, relative losses and performance ratios of different PV configurations are analyzed in this work.
