The aim of this study is to investigate the harmful effects of partial shading of series and parallel connected Solar PV modules and compare their performance. In order to find which connection is less susceptible to partial shading effects, a PSPICE simulation model that represents 36 cells PV module under partial shaded conditions has been used to test several shading profiles and results are presented.
