This study asks the question “Can parallel Gravitational Search Algorithm (GSA) effectively choose parameters for photovoltaic cell current voltage characteristics?” These parameters will be plugged into the Single Diode Model to create the IV curve. It will also investigate Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) and a population based random search (PBRS) to see if GSA performs the search better and or more quickly than alternative algorithms
