This project deals with the design of a photovoltaic model incorporating Matlab/SIMULINK with a suitable DC-DC boost converter involving a maximum power point tracking system.
A new approach for M PPT based fuzzy logic controller is illustrated here with the testing of the models being carried out under various photovoltaic temperatures and varying solar irradiance. Analysis of the results obtained from Simulation clearly indicates that the proposed method remarkably follows the maximum power point under various ambient conditions.
The study is based on the parameters currently considered in the literature, summed up with an original set of parameters selected to be as close as possible to the original photovoltaic systems. This algorithm, in spite of the complexities associated with it, could be conveniently implemented with the help of a microcontroller for converters. ... [more]
