In this paper, a photovoltaic array has been modeled and developed for MATLAB-Simulink environment. The PVA model has been developed by basic circuitry equations of a photovoltaic array, considering the effects of ambient temperature, solar radiation and natural specifications of the photovoltaic cell. For evaluating the model, two different types of the loads have been utilized, a direct coupled DC load and an AC load via a three phase IGBT inverter. The proper matching circuits have been simulated and the output results and characteristics validate that the present study has higher quality in output waveforms.
