Abstract

By detection of input signal, Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithms are used to maximize the potential output power. Since Perturbation and Observe (P&O) method was first applied in a Photovoltaic (PV) system, a myriad of MPPT algorithms has been proposed. With the pros and cons of various MPPT algorithms, a detailed analysis of several typical direct search and module-integrated MPPT algorithms is presented in this paper. Directions of future work for implementing new MPPT algorithms are also outlined.
