Maximum power point tracking of a photovoltaic energy system using neural fuzzy techniques
【摘要】：In order to improve the output efficiency of a photovoltaic(PV) energy system,the real-time maximum power point(MPP) of the PV array should be tracked closely. The non-linear and time-variant characteristics of the photovoltaic array and the non-linear and non-minimum phase characteristics of a boost converter make it difficult to track the MPP as in traditional control strategies. A neural fuzzy controller(NFC) in conjunction with the reasoning capability of fuzzy logical systems and the learning capability of neural networks is proposed to track the MPP in this paper. A gradient estimator based on a radial basis function neural network is developed to provide the reference information to the NFC. With a derived learning algorithm,the parameters of the NFC are updated adaptively. Experimental results show that,compared with the fuzzy logic control algorithm,the proposed control algorithm provides much better tracking performance.
