dc.description.abstractWith the increasing use of photovoltaic (PV) systems, the research studies to improve the efficiency of PV systems have gained greater interest in recent years, especially under non-uniform operating conditions. However, there is a little attention on fault diagnosis of PV arrays. This paper develops and demonstrates a method that can efficiently detect the number of open and short circuit faults and discriminate between them and partial shading conditions. This method is based on only the measurement of operating voltage of PV string and ambient temperature. In that manner, the proposed method takes into consideration of the minimum number of sensors to reduce the cost of the system, as one of the main purposes of this study. The simulation and experimental results are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method under both uniform and non-uniform irradiance conditions.
