The rapidly growing photovoltaic industry is expanding the need for education and training worldwide, particularly at the system level. Modelling Photovoltaic Systems using PSpice provides expert help in understanding photovoltaic systems engineering and system design. Working with PSpice, the most popular standard for analogue and mixed signal simulation, the book allows detailed and quantitative analysis of design concepts, criteria and results.


∗ Both topological and behavioural models for the key components helping short– and long–term simulation.

∗ A model to compute the Loss of Load probability, considering year long daily radiation data.

∗ Sizing procedures for stand–alone and grid connected systems, based on energy balance and long–term simulations.

∗ Models for PV generators, batteries, converters and inverters.

∗ Coverage of numerous topics related to small PV systems, such as artificial light response, random irradiance and illuminance conditions

∗ A comprehensive range of solved examples

This book is an essential tool for students and professional electrical and electronic engineers wishing to gain specialisation in photovoltaics. Educators in Electrical Engineering or Power Electronics will find photovoltaic examples from the book useful.
