In a solar photovoltaic array (SPVA) spread over vast area, it is likely that shadow may fall over some of its cells due to tree leaves falling over it, birds or bird litters on the array, shade of a neighboring construction, passing clouds etc. Under partial shaded conditions the PV characteristics get more complex with multiple peaks. It is important to understand and predict them to get maximum possible power from the SPVA.
