This paper presents a new mathematical model of a solar module. Solar module temperature, solar radiation and its effect on series resistance are taken into account in the model. The experimental data of the solar module under natural environment condition have been obtained to determine the model parameters. Then, the developed model is used to simulate energy yield of the solar module. This energy yield is compared with those obtained from experimental data and conventional approach. The results indicate that the proposed approach can have more accurate energy yield than conventional approach. Thus, it can be useful for the design of PV systems.
