Recent Nature Inspired Techniques for Solar Power Point Tracking Application

Photovoltaic (PV) array generates non-linear I-V and P-V characteristics. As a result, it is difficult to transfer the maximum power from source to load. The Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) is used to track the Maximum Power Point (MPP) and extract the maximum power of solar PV. The disadvantages of conventional MPPT techniques are less MPP tracking speed, high MPP settling time and less accuracy. In order to overcome the disadvantages of conventional techniques, in this article different

In addition, the application of optimization technique based Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technique for standalone and grid connected application is explained in detail. The advantages of optimization techniques are highly reliable, better accuracy, less time to convergence and fast response.
