WHY SOLAR ENERGY?
Solar energy is the most readily available source of
energy.
It is free.
It is also the most important of the nonconventional
sources of energy because it is nonpolluting.

INTRODUCTION
A MPPT system has been consisting of a soft switching
BOOST/BUCKtype dc/dc converter, irrespective of the
temperature and irradiation conditions and of the load electrical
characteristics.
It overcomes the problem of mismatch between the solar arrays
and the given load.
The conventional Boost/Buck converter decreases the
efficiency because of hard switching, which generates losses
when the switches are turned on/off.

PROPOSED SYSTEM
A DCDC converter (step up/step down), serves the purpose of
transferring maximum power from the PV module to the load
and acts as an interface between the load and the module.

The input DC–DC converter part is formed by the PV array and the
output section by the batteries and load. The role of the MPPT is to
ensure the operation of the PV module at its MPP, extracting
the maximum available power.

MODELING OF PV MODULE
A PV module consists of a number of solar cells
connected in series and parallel to obtain the desired
voltage and current output levels.
Each solar cell is basically a pn diode.

WHAT IS A MAXIMUM POWER POINT
TRACKER?
Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT):
Technique used in power electronics systems to obtain the
maximum possible energy from PV arrays.

temperature, variations in solar radiation, and load
condition in a PV system.

Incremental Conductance Method
These method is based on the fact that
the slope dP/dV of the panel PV curve
is positive on the left side of the MPP,
zero at the MPP and negative on the
right side of the MPP.
The incremental and conductance algorithm makes use of the

SOFTSWITCHING DCDC CONVERTER
The dc–dc converter for a PV system has to control the
variation of the maximum power point of the solar cell
output.
The analysis, design and modelling processes of hard
switched converters are mature, where the switching
frequency was limited to a few 10’s of kHz.

THE CONCEPT OF SOFTSWITCHING
Softswitching
The process of power semiconductor device softswitching
21
10/29/2012
TWO TYPES OF SOFTSWITCHING
Is to shape the voltage or the current waveform by creating
a resonant condition to:
Force the voltage across the switching device to drop to
zero before turning it ON ¬ ZeroVoltage Switching
(ZVS)
Force the current through the switching device to drop to
zero before turning it OFF ¬ ZeroCurrent Switching
(ZCS)
22
10/29/2012
WHY SOFTSWITCHING?
Reduce switching losses especially at high switching
frequencies.
Increase the power density, since the size and weight of
the magnetic components is decreased by increasing the
operating frequency.
Reduce the Electromagnetic Interference (EMI).

CONCLUSIONS
The P&O MPPT algorithm is a simple algorithm that
does not require previous knowledge of the PV generator
characteristics or the measurement of solar intensity and
cell temperature.
Direct duty ratio control offers better stability
characteristics and higher energy utilization efficiency at
a slower transient response and worse performance at
rapidly changing irradiance.
Noise has significant impact on the algorithm
performance, especially with low step sizes where the
system response to noise is comparable to that of MPPT
perturbations.

soft switching boost/bucktype dcdc converter,
irrespective of the temperature and irradiation conditions
for home lighting system and battery charging.
