Maximum power point tracking (MPPT) is an essential technique to harvest PV power under varying environments. Perturb and observe (P& O) algorithms are the most broadly used MPPT due to their effectiveness and simplicity. However, it is difficult to balance the tracking speed and oscillation requirements in the conventional P& O with fixed perturb. Adaptive P& O techniques have been proposed as a solution to these problems. However, they are based on duty cycle modulation for conventional pulse… Expand
