Paper Title
Characterisation Of PV- Cell Using Real Data
  Modu M. Ibrahim,  Jibril D. Jiya,  Harrison O. Idakwo

The core of solar energy generation system is the solar cell. Solar photovoltaic depends on weather conditions and properties of semi conductor materials used in its manufacture. The intensity of incident light from the sun is one of the major variables impacting on the output power generated by a solar module, which is described by their current – voltage and power – voltage characteristics curve. This paper focuses on characteristics of solar cell under different levels of real irradiation of Maiduguri weather conditions for a sample year with respect to hot, raining and cold seasons, where months of April, July and December were selected respectively for each season. The data are obtained from Maiduguri weather station in order to simulate and study the behavior of the P-V and I-V characteristics of a solar cell. An equivalent single and double diode models were implemented in MATLAB'S simscape environment. Maximum, average, and minimum radiation levels are considered as inputs for simulation. the output result under different irradiation levels were presented, where the PV cell gives better performance in the simulated area and it was observe that the output of the characteristics curve does not differ much with the results under standard test conditions normally provided by the manufacturer on the solar cell performance characteristics data sheet.

Keywords- Simscape, Irradiation, Photovoltaic-Cell, Real Data.
