An Intelligent Maximum Power Point Tracker Using Peak Current Control

  title={An Intelligent Maximum Power Point Tracker Using Peak Current Control},
  author={N. D. D'Souza and L. A. C. Lopes and Xuejun Liu},
  journal={2005 IEEE 36th Power Electronics Specialists Conference},
The perturbation and observation (P&O) maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithms are commonly used in photovoltaic (PV) systems due to their easy implementation and ability to track the maximum power point (MPP) of the solar array under widely varying atmospheric conditions viz. solar irradiation, panel temperature etc. P&O algorithm based on peak current control and the use of instantaneous sampled values to calculate the next perturbation direction have the potential for faster… CONTINUE READING
