Abstract: Energy is the one of the basic requirements for sustained economic growth. To meet the growing requirement of energy, and to reduce the CO2 emission, many countries have chosen to meet its energy demand through renewable energy resources for sustainable development. Most popular renewable energy resources are solar and wind; due to the technological advancement in solar technology and its demand in the market made solar panels comparatively cheaper. One of the popular ways to extract solar power is installing solar rooftop. The main factor, which affects the performance of solar rooftop PV system, is power mismatch due to shading. In the literature, many reconfiguration methods have proposed based on electrical interconnections and physical location of the solar cell/modules. In this paper, physical-location based techniques are modified as electrical interconnection techniques and its performance is compared through experimentation at various shading patterns.
Keywords: Solar PV, Partial shading, Reconfiguration, Power mismatch, Shading loss.
