Calculates the temperature coefficient of power for a pvsyst single diode model.

The temperature coefficient is determined as the numerical derivative $$\frac{dP}{dT}$$ at the maximum power point at reference conditions 1.

Parameters
• alpha_sc (float) – The short-circuit current temperature coefficient of the module. [A/C]

• gamma_ref (float) – The diode ideality factor. [unitless]

• mu_gamma (float) – The temperature coefficient for the diode ideality factor. [1/K]

• I_L_ref (float) – The light-generated current (or photocurrent) at reference conditions. [A]

• I_o_ref (float) – The dark or diode reverse saturation current at reference conditions. [A]

• R_sh_ref (float) – The shunt resistance at reference conditions. [ohm]

• R_sh_0 (float) – The shunt resistance at zero irradiance conditions. [ohm]

• R_s (float) – The series resistance at reference conditions. [ohm]

• cells_in_series (int) – The number of cells connected in series.

• R_sh_exp (float, default 5.5) – The exponent in the equation for shunt resistance. [unitless]

• EgRef (float, default 1.121) – The energy bandgap of the module’s cells at reference temperature. Default of 1.121 eV is for crystalline silicon. Must be positive. [eV]
