Parameter extraction of a solar cell is essential in the simulation and design calculation of photovoltaic (PV) systems. The mathematical model of the PV module is a non-linear I–V characteristic including several unknown parameters as the PV manufacturers’ data are not sufficient. This study presents a method for estimating the parameters of the single- and double-diode PV models of a PV module based on a nature-inspired meta-heuristic optimisation algorithm known as the whale optimisation algorithm (WOA). The validity of the proposed WOA-based PV model is verified by comparing its simulation results with the experimental results for the PV modules under different environmental conditions
