TL;DR: In this article, the authors proposed a method of modeling and simulation of photovoltaic arrays by adjusting the curve at three points: open circuit, maximum power, and short circuit.

Abstract: This paper proposes a method of modeling and simulation of photovoltaic arrays. The main objective is to find the parameters of the nonlinear I-V equation by adjusting the curve at three points: open circuit, maximum power, and short circuit. Given these three points, which are provided by all commercial array data sheets, the method finds the best I-V equation for the single-diode photovoltaic (PV) model including the effect of the series and parallel resistances, and warranties that the maximum power of the model matches with the maximum power of the real array. With the parameters of the adjusted I-V equation, one can build a PV circuit model with any circuit simulator by using basic math blocks. The modeling method and the proposed circuit model are useful for power electronics designers who need a simple, fast, accurate, and easy-to-use modeling method for using in simulations of PV systems. In the first pages, the reader will find a tutorial on PV devices and will understand the parameters that compose the single-diode PV model. The modeling method is then introduced and presented in details. The model is validated with experimental data of commercial PV arrays.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present a rigorous mathematical foundation for modeling and simulation and provide a comprehensive framework for integrating the various simulation approaches employed in practice, including cellular automata, chaotic systems, hierarchical block diagrams, and Petri nets.

Abstract: From the Publisher:
Although twenty-five years have passed since the first edition of this classical text, the world has seen many advances in modeling and simulation, the need for a widely accepted framework and theoretical foundation is even more necessary today. Methods of modeling and simulation are fragmented across disciplines making it difficult to re-use ideas from other disciplines and work collaboratively in multidisciplinary teams. Model building and simulation has been made easier and faster by riding piggyback on advances in software and hardware. However, difficult and fundamental issues such as model credibility and interoperation have received less attention. These issues are now front and center under the impetus of the High Level Architecture (HLA) standard mandated by the U.S. DoD for all contractors and agencies.
This book concentrates on integrating the continuous and discrete paradigms for modeling and simulation. A second major theme is that of distributed simulation and its potential to support the co-existence of multiple formalisms in multiple model components. Prominent throughout are the fundamental concepts of modular and hierarchical model composition.
This edition presents a rigorous mathematical foundation for modeling and simulation. Also, it now provides a comprehensive framework for integrating the various simulation approaches employed in practice. Including such popular modeling methods as cellular automata, chaotic systems, hierarchical block diagrams, and Petri nets. A unifying concept, called the DEVS Bus, enables models, as expressed in their native formalisms, to be transparently mapped into the Discrete Event System Specification (DEVS). The book shows how to construct computationally efficient, object-oriented simulations of DEVS models on parallel and distributed environments. If you are doing integrative simulations, whether or not they are HLA compliant, this is the only book available to provide the foundation to understand, simplify and successfully accomplish your task.
