Abstract

This paper presents a new high performance boost converter for maximum power point tracking (MPPT) of photovoltaic (PV) systems. The proposed boost converter uses a coupled inductor and an active snubber to minimize losses in the switching and improve efficiency of the converter. For tracking the maximum power point of a PV array, the close loop fuzzy logic and proportional integral derivative (PID) control based MPPT controller has been developed. The performance of the proposed boost converter has been verified using the Orcad PSpice software whereas the MPPT controller is modeled in the Matlab Simulink program. The MPPT controller hardware is implemented in the dSPACE DS1104 platform. The performance of the boost converter and the fuzzy-PID based MPPT controller is then evaluated through simulation and experiment. © 2010 Praise Worthy Prize S.r.l. - All rights reserved.
