Half-cut modules cells strings in PVSOL


Recommended Posts



I'm making shading tests with PVSOL and trying to investigate how different shadings on different module cells reduces module and whole string parameters. I'm using Swiss Solar IBEX 144MHC-COSMOS 450 Wp modules. According to the literature half-cut modules with 3 bypass diodes celss are divided in to the 6 equal string. I tried to model these cases (3-7):


And I got PV curves, which shows 3 cell strings:


Please specify how PVSOL program is design. Does half-cut modules cells are divided in to the 6 cell string or 3 cell string like standart modules with full cells?

Hi Audrius,

thanks for your question.

Half-cell modules are divided into 6 cell areas and considered accordingly in the PV*SOL shading loss calculation.

Here is a post by Martin on this topic:

Does that answer your question?

Kind regards
