Photovoltaic (PV) panels are devices that convert sun light into electrical energy and are considered to be one of the major ways of producing clean and inexhaustible renewable energy. However, these devices do not always naturally operate at maximum efficiency due to the nonlinearity of their output current-voltage characteristic which is affected by the panel temperature and irradiance. Hence, the addition of a high performance maximum-power-point tracking, MPPT, power converter interface is… CONTINUE READING
