    I am having issues where if I use the physical model it is causing all of my values for the simulation to zero out except for the output of the panel. If I cut the circuit out that uses the physical model the rest of the circuits work fine. (Some high numbers but at least I am getting values.)

    Is anyone else having this problem? Or am I missing some component? Any help would be appreciated.

    The solar panel models act like a real solar would in the field. A lot of users run into issues with the panels as they try and use them like a simple DC source. A solar model in PSIM is not a simple DC source, please try and build from the example circuits if you are not sure how to condition the output of the panels properly.

    I’ve looked at your circuit and connecting a panel directly to a DC machine will not work in the real world and as a result it will not work in simulation.
