A Solar Array Simulator Using a Buck Configuration for Small Communications Satellites
The purpose of this paper is to describe a solar array simulator to reproduce the I-V curve characteristics of solar panel modules using software. The simulator takes the storage data of I-V curves to use it as reference control to match the actual output of buck circuit with the selected module under test.
