This paper proposes a hybrid computational intelligence algorithm for identifying parameters of the photovoltaic (PV) cell model. In the proposed algorithm, Jaya algorithm is applied to perform the global search while Nelder–Mead (NM) algorithm is employed to conduct the local search. The integration of Jaya and NM algorithms provide the ability to find the global optimum solution in a multidimensional optimization problem. To validate the effectiveness of the proposed Jaya-NM algorithm, current and voltage data from a commercial PV cell are utilized and the single diode model parameter are identified. The results show that the proposed algorithm outperforms recently published identification methods.
