Currently, the world is widely introducing renewable energy sources including solar power plants (SPP). In order to predict their work, it is necessary to adequately simulate the processes occurring in solar panels, not only in standard conditions, but also in conditions of partial shading. At present, the effect of partial shadowing is considered from the point of view of changes in the luminous flux, however, for a more adequate and comprehensive simulation, it is also necessary to take into account the temperature change in the shaded areas of SPP, especially considering the area of powerful SPP, the temperature of individual sections of which can radically differ, which is undoubtedly will lead to a change in the output characteristics of the SPP. Failure to take this factor into account, when modeling high-power SPP leads to results that do not correspond to real data.
