Cascaded simulated annealing/perturb and observe method for MPPT in PV systems

Abstract

In this paper, we show that by suitably integrating simulated annealing (SA) with perturb and observe (P&O) algorithm, the performance of maximum power point tracking (MPPT) in a photovoltaic (PV) system under non uniform insolation conditions can be substantially improved. The appealing advantages of SA and P&O method are thus combined to yield a… (More)
