Partial Shading of Solar Panel


Partial shading of photovoltaic panels can highly degrade their performances and paralyze them from producing any significant energy. In extreme cases, a permanent damage can be inflicted on the system that can lead to out of service situation. In this workshop, a faulty system is analyzed from the electrical circuit point of view by using photovoltaic cells equivalent circuit. At the same time, the problem is modeled on MATLAB simscape and the results are compared with theoretically obtained ones.


  • Mr. Swar A Zubeer, Duhok Polytechnic University
  • Dr. Ezideen A Hasso, Energy Engineering Department, Duhok Polytechnic University
