Implementation of MPPT Algorithm and Supervision of Shading on Photovoltaic Module

S. Latreche, A. E. Badoud, M. Khemliche


This paper presents an implementation of MPPT (maximum power point tracking) algorithm based on real-time measurements and on model-based simulation. For the supervision of a photovoltaic module, different cases of shading are used. Attention was given on advanced control for the supervision of a photovoltaic system according to the need to maximize energy output. Experimental results verified the performance and the feasibility of the proposed system.
