Reviewer Comment--In the proposed control, MPP power is approximated because of the use of the load line method. How close is the approximated value to the real value? Is there a way to quantify the difference?

I think we can quantify the difference in the power as an approximation. The quantities r and Vth we considered are panel dependent. So different panels have different straight line equations. Considering we are concentrating on only the panel we used for the simulation and hardware BP380J. While considering only BP380J ...... My Explanation: The power PMPP obtained by the method discussed is: PMPP  VMPP×ISC But the PMPP must be PMPP = VMPP×IMPP IMPP = K ×ISC But K varies with respect to temperature, Assuming temperature to be 25 0c. We can take K = 0.92. So, IMPP = 0.92 × ISC But in the method it is assumed IMPP = ISC So we can say PMPP is approximated by 0.92, if only ISC is corrected. But the VMPP we considered is also approximated VMPP

(r×ISC) + Vth

ISC must be IMPP if we are assuming the straight line to be falling on the (VMPP , IMPP) point of the V-I curve.

977 for VMPP and 0. (0.90). 0. As r and V th varies with irradiation. here the Isc = 4.(2) The change in value in (1) from (2) is 0..321V..5 A.977 but not 0.(1) But the Isc must be IMPP which is equal to K times Isc VMPP VMPP   (r×IMPP) + Vth (r×0. Because of the presence of Vth which is 18.5) + 18.90 = 90% .. Taking the case of 1 sun condition.977 × 0.56 = 14.. We can say PMPP is approximated about 0. VMPP = (-0.733812 V.8945  0.90 percent.92. giving a total of 0.56 = 14....5)+18.92 = 0.9719.92 for IMPP. But we must make sure that the obtained r and Vth are tuned well for all the irradiation to match the straight line equation.92ISC) + Vth VMPP = (-0..9242*4.9719 = 0.56 So.92 * 0.92 and VMPP 0..9242×0.92*4.9242 and Vth = 18. VMPP  (r×ISC) + Vth we have r = -0.9719 % So the total error is IMPP 0.56 in our case the error in VMPP is reduced to 0.As r and Vth are constant.
