An Efficient MPPT Solar Charge Controller

Abstract

In this paper Maximum power point tracker battery charger is proposed for extracting maximum power from a photovoltaic panel to charge the battery. The output power of the PV system continuously varies with change in irradiance and temperature. It is very important to improve the efficiency of charger. There are number of maximum power point tracking (MPPT) methods available to operate the PV system at maximum power point. The proposed system have used Perturb & Observe (P&O) MPPT algorithm for the design and implementation. When irradiance and temperature are constant or slowly varying, the P&O method tracks MPP steadily and calculate the operating point at which the battery is capable of producing maximum power. In this method, the controller provides the PWM signal to adjust the voltage, adjustment is done by Buck converter and measures power, if the power increases, further adjustments in that direction are tried until power no longer increases
