Modeling a photovoltaic source is a necessary operation in order to track the maximum power point of the solar panels for a specific condition. Generally, solar panels are modeled as nonlinear elements because of their nonlinear characteristics. Thus, maximum power point is tracked by numerical algorithms. As a different approach, this paper proposes an analytical maximum power point tracking (MPPT) technique using a dynamic Thevenin model dependent on ambient conditions. The analytical MPPT… CONTINUE READING
