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: In order to check the proposed methodology, a real photovoltaic facility, whose behavior was measured, together with the ambient conditions, by Houssamo et al. [50], has been studied. This photovoltaic facility is formed by eight Q125PI solar panels manufactured by Conergy, organized in four two-panel series connected in parallel. The characteristics of the panels are included in Table 3, whereas the sun radiation and the panel temperature during the measurements are included in Figure 14.
