Conventional popular MPPT methods are effective under uniform solar irradiance. However, under partially shaded conditions, these MPPTs can fail to track the real MPP because of the multiple local maxima which can be existed on PV characteristic curve under partially shaded condition. In spite of some researchers have worked on real MPP tracking under partial shading conditions, the methods have some drawbacks with complexity and requirement of additional circuit, etc. In this paper, a novel… CONTINUE READING
