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.

fig12: Block-diagrams of the different MPPT used in the present work.

Mentions: As can be observed in the corresponding block-diagram of Figure 12, if solar panel output voltage, V, is higher than the reference value, Vref, then the duty cycle, α, should be reduced, as indicated in the Boost-converter analysis. Otherwise, if V < Vref it will have to be increased to obtain the opposite effect.
