Modified P&O MPPT technique for photovoltaic systems

Abstract

Maximum power point tracking (MPPT) techniques are widely applied in photovoltaic system to produce the maximum power of the PV generator. In this paper, we presented a modified variable step size P&O MPPT algorithm. The proposed method can greatly improve the response time and precision MPPT steady state simultaneously. The proposed approach has been tested in MATLAB / Simulink environment, and the results show that the new algorithm is more accurate and faster than the traditional P&O method.
