PI controller design using ABC algorithm for MPPT of PV system supplying DC motor pump load

Abstract

Maximum power point tracking (MPPT) is used in photovoltaic (PV) systems to maximize its output power. A new MPPT system has been suggested for PV–DC motor pump system by designing two PI controllers. The first one is used to reach MPPT by monitoring the voltage and current of the PV array and adjusting the duty cycle of the DC/DC converter. The second PI… (More)
