Peripheral interface controller-based maximum power point tracking algorithm for photovoltaic DC to DC boost controller

Peripheral interface controller-based maximum power point tracking algorithm for photovoltaic DC to DC boost controller

As mentioned earlier, using solar energy is an active topic which has been discussed by many researchers throughout the world. In-state of the art, it is agreed upon that the solar cells operate with low efficiency. Therefore, the challenge is to find the best possible technique to improve the efficiency of those cells. A maximum power point tracking (MPPT) is an appreciated development in this field. Many methods have been utilized for MPP tracking. Several methods are discussed in details and benchmarked in this section. For example, perturb and observe method [26], incremental conductance method [27], constant voltage method [28] and short-current pulse method [29]. An alternative method in the extracting of the maximum possible power from the PV panel is through the integration of the MPPT circuit into the system. The concept of the circuit simplicity which integrates the programmable interface controller (PIC) microcontroller is the main sign of this method.

Comparative of Maximum Power Point Tracking Solar Photovoltaic Fed Brushless DC Motor

This paper proposes a simple, cost effective and efficient brushless DC (BLDC) motor drive for solar photovoltaic (SPV) array fed water pumping system. The importance of using a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithm is demonstrated to ensure that a PV system provides the most energy possible. Two different maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithms are introduced. A boost converter is used in order to extract the maximum available power from the SPV. An appropriate control of boost converter through the Perturb & Observe maximum power point tracking (PO- MPPT) algorithm offers soft starting of the BLDC motor.

gle of ninety degree with the direction incoming ray of sun. This issue is beyond our topic of discussion. The second one is the electrical MPPT where electrical oper- ating point is forced at the peak power point continuously by adjusting the duty cycle of the DC-DC converter in- serted between PV array and load. However several MPPT methods have been summarized in the literatures [20,21]. The methods vary in complexity, sensors re- quired, tracking efficiency, convergence speed, cost, and in other respects. Some of the well-known techniques are Perturb & Observe (P & O), Incremental Conductance, Fractional Open-Circuit, Fractional Short-Circuit, Fuzzy Logic and Neural Network based algorithms. Among them the Perturb and Observe (P & O) algorithm is most commonly used in practice due to its fast tracking speed, low cost and eases of implementation by the majority of authors [22-27]. It is an iterative method of obtaining MPP. It measures the PV array voltage and current, and then perturbs the operating point of PV generator to en- counter the change direction. The maximum point is reached when d d P V  0 . There are many varieties, from simple to complex. But the most basic form ex- plained in Figure 4; that has been adopted in this paper. To seek MPP, the operating voltage of the PV array per- turbed, by a small amount, and the resulting change in power, is measured. If the power increases due to the perturbation then the next perturbation of the operat- ing voltage is continued in the same direction. However, if the power decreases, the subsequent perturbation should be reversed.

operating under PSCs and load variations. PSO is an evolutionary computation algorithm and has been applied for MPPT of PV systems in some investigations (Ishaque et al., 2012; Koad et al., 2016; Manickam et al., 2016; Seyedmahmoudian et al., 2015; Sundareswaran et al., 2015; Liu et al., 2012; Babu et al., 2015), but none of these treat the multilevel DC-link PV converter system. In this context the benefit of using the MPSO is clear; it can predict all the PV-Converter voltages at their respective MPPs as defined by their light levels quickly and without disturbing the system. The predicted voltages are applied to control the individual DC-DC converters simultaneously. In this paper a permutation PWM scheme is applied to control the multiple module terminal converters, so that switching utilisation can be balanced. In addition the output of the whole converter chain is connected to a DC-AC voltage source converter, providing a suitable AC output for grid connection.

Development of a DC to DC buck converter for photovoltaic application utilizing peripheral interface controller

Nowadays, renewable energy has become one of the important energy resources in our daily lives. One of the important and promising renewable energy resource today is the photovoltaic (PV). However, weather changes contribute to the PV output power fluctuations. Thus, for a PV-related system, a closed-loop control system is necessary for ensuring the system produces a regulated dc output voltage. This paper presents the development of PIC16F877A microcontroller- based dc to dc buck converter. This converter steps down a dc voltage source to a specific voltage which suitable for other specific applications. For the PV output voltage fluctuating from 18V to 12V, the microcontroller generates a pulse-width modulation (PWM) signal accordingly to control the converter switching device MOSFET IRF540, thus regulating the converter output voltage to 12V. The system simulation was carried out in the PROTEUS ISIS Professional software tool. Due to the unavailability of the PV device in this simulation software, a dc voltage source is utilized. This voltage source is varied to emulate the PV output variations. The simulation results show that the controller managed to step-down the voltage source and regulated at 11.98Vdc. The prototype was built and tested in a laboratory for validation. Due to the constrains and limitations of the PV module, an adjustable power supply was used to provide variation of input voltage levels for the buck converter. The experiment results also show that the output voltage is managed to be regulated at 12V. The results signify the efficacy of developed converter control system algorithm.

Single Stage Switched Capacitor with DC-DC Boost Converter Using Maximum Power Point Tracking

Single Stage Switched Capacitor with DC-DC Boost Converter Using Maximum Power Point Tracking

This study has successfully developed a high-efficiency isolated single-input multiple-output buck converter with step- down operational states, and this coupled-inductor-based converter was applied well to a single input power source plus two output terminals composed of an auxiliary battery module and a high-voltage dc bus. The experimental results reveal that the maximum efficiencies at the step-up state and the step-down state were measured to be 94% and 97%, respectively. The major contributions of the proposed converter are recited as follows:This topology adopts eight power switches to achieve the objectives of high-efficiency power conversion, electric isolation, bi-directional energy transmission, and various output voltage with different levels.The stray energy can be recycled by a clamped capacitor into the auxiliary battery module or high-voltage dc bus to ensure the property of voltage clamping. An auxiliary inductor is designed for providing the charge power to the auxiliary battery module and assisting the switch turned on under the condition of zero-voltage-switching (ZVS). The switch voltage stress at the step-up state is not related to the input voltage so that it is more suitable for a dc power conversion mechanism with different input voltage levels. The copper loss in the magnetic core can be greatly reduced as a full copper film with lower turns. This high-efficiency converter topology provides designers with alternative electric isolation choices for boosting a low-voltage power source to multiple outputs with different voltage levels, or reversely transmitting the energy of high-voltage dc bus efficiently. The auxiliary battery module used in this study also can be extended easily to other dc loads, even for different voltage demands, via the manipulation of circuit components design. The project can be extended into still more E-vehice devices to be connected. (at present we have connected 10 vehicles per phase). The control algorithms can be implemented as a micro controller based or DSP based systems. A hardware implementation of the full system may be worked out in future tenure of the project. The system may be implemented as a single chip system with SOC (system on chip) technology.

Optimization of DC   DC boost converter using fuzzy logic controller

Optimization of DC DC boost converter using fuzzy logic controller

Figure 2.1 shows the basic circuit configuration used in the buck converter. There are only four main components namely switching power MOSFET Q1, flywheel diode D1, inductor L and output filter capacitor C1. In this circuit the transistor that is switched ON will put voltage on one end of the inductor. This voltage causes the current of the inductor to rise. When the transistor is switched OFF, the current continue to flow through the inductor. At the same time, it flows through the diode. Initially it is assumed that the current flowing through the inductor does not reach zero; thus the voltage will only go across the conducting diode during the full OFF time. The average voltage depends on the average ON time of the transistor on the condition that the current of the inductor is continuous.

On this earth almost every source of energy is because of the SUN directly or indirectly. On this earth India is richest in terms of solar radiation where almost India receives 250 to 300 days per year solar radiations. This is enough to provide 6000 Trillion Kwh per year. Now to extract this much power from the sun solar cells plays an important role. But since the output of solar cells is adversely affected by the atmospheric condition, there should be a technique which is used to get maximum amount of power from these solar cells. There are broadly two types of solar cells amorphous silicon cell and crystalline silicon cell. In this paper amorphous silicon cell is used. To extract maximum power from the solar cell irrespective of the atmospheric condition dc to dc converter can be used which convert variable dc output into fixed dc output. There are various types of converters out of witch specific type should be applicable to appropriate one.
