A novel procedure to extract and analyze the power losses, mainly due to mismatch effects, in a photovoltaic (PV) system is presented. The developed model allows the extraction of the main PV module and PV array parameters from I-V characteristics, as well as in dynamic behavior under real conditions of work. The method allows a good estimation of the mismatch effect on the total PV system power losses.
