How does time-variyng radiation is interpreted by a Solar Cell in Simulink? How can I obtain the power produced?

2 views (last 30 days)
Hello everybody,
I'm interested in obtaining the annual power production of a single solar cell. For that I have done the input of a timeseries in Simulink where the first column is the annual hours (01-12-2017 12:00:00, for example) and the second is the correspondent radiation in Wh/m2).
How do I obtain the power produced for the complete input time?
Thank you so much, Sofia

You can write a program for that, with irradiance as input and maximum power from the cell as output. So for each time you can calculate the maximum power the cell can generate. You can calculate the total energy the cell can produce in a year from this.

I need to simulate using simulink because I'm doing a simulation of a bifacial panel, so actually I have 120 values of irradiation.
