Abstract


ABSTRACT

Photovoltaic (PV) systems convert solar energy into electric power. Semiconductor device named Photovoltaic (PV) cell converts the light into electric current. Voltage versus Current and power versus current characteristic of PV cell is depending on irradiance and temperature thus it has nonlinear characteristic. The discrepancy in input current of PV panel demands adjustment of voltage across the load for getting maximum power. For receiving maximum power, the combination of voltage and current is tracked by Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithms. A brief review of MPPT algorithms of different methods like: open circuit voltage, incremental conductance, short circuit current, Hill climbing algorithm, Perturb and Observe algorithm are analyzed with respect to different parameters.

Keywords: photovoltaic, semiconductor, MPPT, open circuit voltage method, short circuit current method, Hill climbing, incremental conductance
