Abstract

After a short description of the solar cell characteristics, various connections are studied. The simplest cases are the parallel and series connections which form the basic connections of more complicated matrices. Later, more sophisticated types of arrays are discussed, where again, general equations were developed. Some numerical examples are worked out and compared in some cases to experimental ones. Two types of faults are discussed: the short circuit and disconnection of cells. These types of faults are studied for various matrix connections and the severity of each type of fault is determined in every case mentioned above. Therefafter the problem of shadowing in various types of matrices is analyzed; thus, the influence of shadowing on the power output of the system is determined.
