Short circuit Open circuit , Filling Factor values


Recommended Posts

Good evening

The shot circuit current is independent on the orientation and inclination of your system. It depends on the PV modules you are using. If you have more than one series in aprallel, the short circuit current of the installation would be the added value of the current on each serie. If you have only one serie of modules the short ciecuir current would be the one the module indicates on its data characteristics.

Open circuir current would be 0. I believe you are referring to open circuit voltage. Again it depends of how you configure your system. Adding modules in serie you sum up their open voltage respectively.

Fill factor, more commonly known by its abbreviation "FF", is a parameter which, in conjunction with Voc and Isc, determines the maximum power from a solar cell. The FF is defined as the ratio of the maximum power from the solar cell to the product of Voc and Isc.
