A Standard Cell PV Panel model with 60 standard cells or 72 standard cells.
It is made up of 3 groups of PV cells connected in series with 3 parallel bypass diode. The 3 bypass diode divided the entire PV panel into 3 vertical sections area, allowing partial shading to be simulated. The bypass diode is activated at shaded group allowing current to bypass through the shaded area, hence minimizing the current generation losses.
