A New Engineering Model of Solar Array and MPPT Control
An engineering model of solar array can reflect the real-time output voltage and current, the maximum power point voltage, the maximum power point current and the maximum power point in any light intensity and any temperature of solar arrary. A simulation model is established in Matlab/Simulink and proved the engineering model correctly and reliability. Using the method of Perturbation and Observation (P&O) and Incremental Conductance (INC) track the maximum power point of a solar array under the reference standard of these output elements, and found out the pursuit gain around the reference standard oscillation and further to validate the model's reliability.
