Description

Light harvester have to cope with natural and artificial light and varying intensities. Here we simulate the response of a PV-Si-cell module for various lighting conditions and circuit parameters.The circuit shown below is used.

Harvester

You can select / vary (see figure):

You can explore how the serial and parallel losses influence the optimum load as well as the conversion efficiency for different illumination conditions.
