A Novel Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) Technique for Photovoltaic Solar Panels

DATE:       July 7, 2020

TIME:        18 19:30.


novel Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technique for photovoltaic (PV)
solar panels will be presented.  Current
sensors are costly components. They also require a signal conditioning
circuitry to reduce the noise and condition the signal to be sampled and used
by the controller.  Th
method takes advantage of the non-linearity of the I-V curve of the solar panel
find the MPP
. By injecting high-frequency perturbation signals and
monitoring the system behavior current sensing used for controlling of MPPT
is eliminated. This elimination can reduce the cost of MPPT circuitry. The proposed method also shows a very fast tracking response due to the use of high-frequency signals instead of relying on low frequency and DC signals which are used in the traditional methods. Numerical analysis, simulation results, and experimental results verify the feasibility of the proposed technique will be shown.


Tude Ranjbar received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Tehran,
Iran (2017). In this period, his main focus was on collaboration with different laboratories in ECE and Mechanical engineering departments. He started his M.A.Sc degree in 2018 at Queen’s, Canada with a focus on improving the efficiency of the solar system power generation techniques.  Since March 2020, Mr. Ranjbar has joined the System
Architecture group at HUADA Semiconductors where his main focus is designing power applications using Huada’s microcontrollers, gate drivers and current sense amplifiers.
