Application of INC-MPPT for Photovoltaic Systems with Step Up DC-DC Integrated Boost-Flyback Converter: IBFC
Department of Electrical Engineering, King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok
Nowadays, small size of renewable energy such as a few hundred watts of photovoltaic (PV) arrays is popular adopted in households. In order to obtain maximum power from the PV module, an algorithm of maximum power point tracking (MPPT) functions with a high efficiency of DC/DC converter is necessary. In this paper, take into account component’s parasitic of the Integrated Boost-Flyback Converter (IBFC). The controller can track the maximum power point by incremental conductance (INC) method. To achieve the maximum energy transfer at any time. The results of the simulation with MATLAB/Simulink program. The simulation will be compared with results obtained from testing a prototype system. To show that it can apply to works.
