ABSTRACT
Due to increasingly human needs of energy, new technologies and energy sources must be used to supply the demand of clean energy in the context of environmental issues. Renewable energy sources like solar energy has one of the most potential and it is studied here. In this model, solar panels are one of the essential parts of a photovoltaic system which convert solar energy to electrical energy and have nonlinear I-V characteristic curves. The purpose of this paper is to propose a MATLAB/ Simulink simulation for photovoltaic module based on the two-diode model of a photovoltaic cell. This model is known to have better accuracy at low irradiance levels which allows for more accurate prediction of photovoltaic systems performance.

Keywords: diode, energy, modeling, photovoltaic, simulation.
