    This paper proposes the use of the unscented Kalman filter to estimate the equivalent model of a photovoltaic (PV) array, using external measurements of current and voltage at the inverter level. The estimated model is of interest to predict the power output of PV plants, in both planning and operation scenarios, and thus improves the efficient operation of power systems with high penetration of renewable energy. The proposed technique has been assessed in several simulated scenarios under different operating conditions. The results show that accurate estimates are provided for the model parameters, even in the presence of measurement noise and abrupt variations under the external conditions.
