An improved digital control for SEPIC converter has been designed and implemented in order to extract the maximum power from a photovoltaic system. A maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithm has been used to increase the energy extracted from the source in a microcontroller based environment. Analyses of the electric behavior of the photovoltaic modules have been performed looking to create a mathematical model that has been represented by a lumped parameters circuit. Such a model is… CONTINUE READING
