Design and Implementation of a Linear Quadratic Regulator Based Maximum Power Point Tracker for Solar PhotoVoltaic System

  title={Design and Implementation of a Linear Quadratic Regulator Based Maximum Power Point Tracker for Solar PhotoVoltaic System},
  author={Dnyaneshwar S. Karanjkar and S. Chatterji and Amod Kumar},
A maximum power point tracking (MPPT) technique based on linear quadratic regulator (LQR) approach for solar photo-voltaic system has been proposed in this paper. LQR based MPPT controller has been designed with online set-point adjustment approach using current, radiation and temperature sensors. Real time simulations have been carried out on MATLAB TM /dSPACE TM platform for solar photo-voltaic system with buck converter. Performance of the proposed technique hase been compared with perturb…
