This paper presents a novel sliding mode control (SMC) approach for maximum power point tracking (MPPT) of photovoltaic (PV) panel using buck converter. Since classical hill climbing and incremental conductance MPPT methods can not differentiate change in power due to perturbed voltage and changing weather condition, both algorithms are prone to failure in… CONTINUE READING
