Evaluation and monitoring of solar panel are need to be done, primarily related to how much energy is produced. Energy production by a solar panel is affected by the characteristics of climate or weather of a particular location such as solar radiation and ambient temperature. This study aimed to compare two models of solar panel performance calculation, i.e., Sandia PV Array Model and Five Parameter Model by considering the tropical climate of Indonesia and see the effect of temperature and solar radiation changes on the results of the calculations of both methods through the I-V curve. The types of solar panels on monitored are a monocrystalline, polycrystalline, and thin film. The results show that the energy produced by Sandia PV Array Performance Model for the three types of solar panels are 54.36 Wdc, 51.57 Wdc, and 39.62 Wdc, respectively. Five Parameter Performance Model results are 56.58 Wdc, 52.7 Wdc, and 43.29, respectively. These results show that with a small amount of data, the Five Parameter Model is more optimal and efficient for the tropics compared to Sandia PV Array Model.
