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.

Mentions: As mentioned in Section 1, the aim of the present work is to describe a simple methodology to model a solar panel operating within a wide range of ambient conditions and to analyze different MPPT options for photovoltaic systems (see in Figure 9 the block-diagram corresponding to a photovoltaic system equipped with a MPPT). In the following subsections four MPPT methods are studied as an example of the proposed method:
