Photovoltaic (PV) systems are prone to deep, steep and frequent irradiance fluctuations, mainly originated from overpassing cloud shadows, which cause fluctuations in PV power production. These irradiance transitions have been modelled by using a mathematical function to study their behaviour in a systematic way. Although the used methods and obtained results seem to be reliable, the simulation model has not been verified in detail. In this paper, the accuracy of the used theoretical model for irradiance transitions has been verified experimentally. The results show that the simulation model is accurate enough to study the irradiance transitions caused by moving clouds and their effects on the operation of PV systems.
