N2 - Energy conversion of electrical cells (photovoltaic, chemical and other cells) are of relatively low power and low voltage levels. The cells are therefore connected in an array to produce the desired power and voltage. The cells are ″nonidentical″ in their output parameters, and the parameter dispersions affect the array performance in such a way that the power output is lower than the desired, and hence additional cells have to be added to compensate for the mismatch losses. The paper deals first, in general, with the calculation of array output power of nonidentical cells of any type. A more detailed calculation of the influence of the parameter dispersion on the array output power and the number of cells is given for ideal electrochemical cells.
