This paper proposes a comprehensive modeling and parameters extraction method of solar photovoltaic module based on the Particle Swarm Optimization algorithm. The characteristic curves of photovoltaic panel are obtained by using only the information provided by the manufacturer data-sheet, avoiding the need to carry out experimental data. The performance and the accuracy of the proposed method are evaluated by applying the one-diode model and the results are compared with those obtained by the well-known Lambert W function. The proposed method shows a higher performance.
