Abstract: The world's population is increasing day by day. This increase, together with the desire of people to achieve a better quality of life, leads to a continuous rise in energy consumption. At present, most of the primary energy is obtained from non-renewable sources. Their supply however is limited and their usage produce a considerable amount of greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, renewable energy sources are the only way forward to achieve a sustainable use of the available energy resources. Among the different sources of renewable energy, solar energy is highly promising due to the enormous amount of energy provided by the sun almost anywhere on the planet. The most widely use of solar energy is the direct conversion into electricity using the so-called “photovoltaic” (PV) effect. Although this technology has achieved a certain level of maturity, it still has room and need for further improvements to increase efficiencies and lower cost. Hence, the overall objective of this work is to study the current limitations in the area of PV and propose strategies to overcome them by applying optimization approaches. Different studies were performed to optimize the performance at the cell, module, and system levels.
