Abstract

One of the ambitious goals of the ‘‘Smart city’’ paradigm is to design zero-energy buildings. Buildings can be considered as connected cyber-physical systems that require the construction of sound methodologies inherited from the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) research. In particular, aiming at autonomous buildings, the effective design of renewable energy sources is a key aspect for which such methodologies have to be developed. In this work, we propose a modeling strategy for the early estimation of the performance of photovoltaic (PV) arrays. Although a plethora of PV panel models there exists, most of these models suffer from accuracy/complexity tradeoffs. On one hand, building fast models forces to ignore either the correlation between temperature and irradiance, or the topology of panels, thus yielding inaccurate estimations. On the other, more accurate models are time consuming and require costly measurements or circuit analysis, that cannot be extracted from the sole datasheet. This paper proposes a compact semi-empirical model, suitable for real time simulation and built solely from information derived from the PV panel datasheet. The model is built by empirically fitting an expression of the panel operating point as a function of both irradiance and temperature, and of the adopted PV system topology. The accuracy and effectiveness of the proposed model have been validated w.r.t. the production traces of the PV systems of a real world industrial building.
