Introduction: Solar arrays are used in many terrestrial and space ap cations. For best utilisation, the photovoltaic cells must be operate their maximum power point (MPP). However, the MPP varies with ill mination, temperature, radiation dose and other ageing effects. M maximum power point trackers (MPPTs) are based on the perturb observe approach (P&O), implemented by a hill climbing algorith often on a microcontroller [1]. This approach is complex, can be s and thus can become ‘confused’ if… CONTINUE READING
