Comparative Analysis between Ps/O & I/C Based MPPT Techniques for Optimal Electricity Generation from Solar Energy

Author : Sonam Juneja 1 Vijay Kumar Garg 2

Date of Publication :23rd January 2018

Abstract: Maximum power point tracking (MPPT) is an algorithm used to track the maximum power under the varying external atmospheric conditions such as irradiance, temperature, at a point where maximum power is obtained is called the maximum power point. This paper presents the comparative analysis between perturb & observe method and incremental conductance techniques. Perturb & observe technique is used to detect current and voltage of the PV array and it also calculates that operating point which gives the maximum power by using its algorithm. Incremental Conductance measure incremental changes in current and voltage and MPP is obtained at a point where conductance of PV array and incremental conductance are same. MATLAB software used for the performance evaluation of both techniques under varying atmospheric conditions.
