This paper presents a novel approach on diode model parameters identification from the I-V characteristics of PV panels. Other than the prevailing methodology of solving a group of nonlinear equations from a few points on the I-V curve, the proposed one views the diode model as the equivalent output of a dynamic system. From this new viewpoint, diode model parameters are linked to the transfer function (after Laplace transform) of the same dynamic system whose parameters are then identified by a simple integral-based linear square. Indoor flash test shows the accuracy and effectiveness of the proposed method, and outdoor module testing shows its ability of online monitoring and diagnostics. Comparisons to the methods of Lambert W function and evolution algorithms are also included.
