An accurate model is essential when designing photovoltaic (PV) systems. PV models rely on a set of transcendental nonlinear equations which add to the model complexity. This letter proposes a simple and easy-to-model approach for implementation in simulations of PV systems. It takes advantage of the simplicity of ideal models and enhances the accuracy by deriving a mathematical representation, capable of extracting accurate estimates of the model parameters, directly related to manufacturer datasheets. Experimental measurements proved the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
