Accurate simulation of MPPT methods performance when applied to commercial photovoltaic panels.

Cubas J, Pindado S, Sanz-Andrés Á - ScientificWorldJournal (2015)

Bottom Line: A new, simple, and quick-calculation methodology to obtain a solar panel model, based on the manufacturers' datasheet, to perform MPPT simulations, is described.The method takes into account variations on the ambient conditions (sun irradiation and solar cells temperature) and allows fast MPPT methods comparison or their performance prediction when applied to a particular solar panel.The feasibility of the described methodology is checked with four different MPPT methods applied to a commercial solar panel, within a day, and under realistic ambient conditions.

fig5: Ambient conditions on May 13, 1971 (a), (b), and May 14, 1971 (c), (d). Solar irradiance is represented in left side, and temperature and wind velocity are in right side.

Mentions: Two different ambient conditions (sun irradiance and temperature levels) have been considered for the simulations carried out. The first one is a cloudy day, with low but very unstable irradiance level, and the second one is a sunny day; see graphs in Figure 5. These data are, respectively, the irradiance level at the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) on May 13 (cloudy day) and May 14, 1971 (sunny day), and have been extracted from the work by Thekaekara [47]. Temperature and wind speed conditions corresponding to those days have been obtained from the measurements done at Washington, DC, this city being quite close to GSFC [48].
