Novel hybrid maximum power point tracking algorithm for PV systems under partially shaded conditions

Photovoltaic (PV) system has non-linear powervoltage (P-V) characteristic with single maximum power point (MPP) in uniform condition. The P-V curve would be more complicated during partially shaded (PS) conditions (PSCs) when multi-peak powers exist. The point with the highest value of power among the multi-peak powers is called global maximum power point… (More)
