    Simulating Solar cells in PSPICE‏‏‏ Reply
    Good day everyone,

    I have some questions regarding simulating solar cells in PSPICE.

    I am trying to simulate the reverse characteristics  of shading on solar cells, but it is difficult for me.

    I am using the Dbreak diode from the Breakout library(Capture => Libraray => Pspice => breakout.olb). I was also looking to maybe use a Schottsky diode, but I can't find them in the libraries?. I red on internet that the schottsky is better to use, because of his breakdown voltage. if this diodes are not the good one's, which do I need to use then?

     I am not a PSPICE expert, so I am searching a lot) ;-) but also learning a lot.

    Can you maybe give me some advice?

    regards

    Can you share equivalent electrical circuit you are trying to simulate? This would help understand exact requirement and hence enable other to provide suggestion.

    DBreak from breakout library is like ideal diode in real world, which does have breakdown voltage, reverse recovery charge etc. if your circuit is dependent upon these specific characteristics of diode, you need to add them in model explicitly.

    It don't work to add images on this page.
