Bifurcation and Chaos in Converter Interfaces in Solar PV Systems-A Review

M. Subashini, M. Ramaswamy
2017 Journal of Engineering Science and Technology Review  
The paper attempts to present a detailed study of the nonlinear phenomena that includes bifurcations, sub-harmonics and chaos in an effort to arrive at the appropriate choice of converter interface suitable for specific PV systems and evolve criterions for their design and control. The resurgence of switching dc-dc converters as power processing units in renewable energy applications appear to open up new perceptions for harnessing energy efficiency. The focus orients to review the modelling

The exercise incites to explain the forms of bifurcations, the routes to chaos and the associated control techniques for arbitrating its significance in this perspective. The benefits of analysis of nonlinear phenomena in regulatory applications claim a new space in energy processing applications and forge to explore their role as maximum power point (MPP) trackers. The emphasis endeavours to enhance the scope of use of solar energy and offer a fresh dimension to support the clean energy act and perpetuate the desire to enliven a greener world.
