Abstract

We study in this paper, based on comparison already made in the literature concerning photovoltaic generator power models, the most optimal model applied to the operation of the photovoltaic generator of Sévagan (Togo). The comparison with the experimental data is carried out, which allowed us to verify the validity of the model. Finally, the influence of the characteristic parameters on the photovoltaic module ECO LINE LX-260P used to make the photovoltaic generator of the Sévagan dispensary (in Togo) is studied in order to predict the power production of the module according to the meteorological conditions(temperature-Irradiation). The comparison with the experimental data will be carried out in order to verify the validity of the model. To verify the validity of the model throughout the range of weather conditions, the process was done in two steps: on a sunny day and a cloudy day. A good agreement was observed with 95%, 97% and 99% correlation coefficients for cloudy, sunny days and the generator photocurrent simulation respectively. The results demonstrate an acceptable accuracy of the power model under different environmental conditions.
