The Fastest MPPT Tracking Algorithm for a PV array fed BLDC Motor Driven Air Conditioning system

ABSTRACT:

The fastest and novel adaptive voltage reference MPPT tracking algorithm for PV cluster sustained BLDC drive for aerating and cooling application is proposed in this paper. The fastest maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithm tracks the power instantaneously if there is any change in the solar irradiation. Low cost and energy efficiency is achieved by removing the conventional DC/DC boost converter stage which reduces the switching losses and further reduces the overall cost of the system thereby minimizing the power conversion stages. The proposed quickest MPPT algorithm for BLDC motor driven PV array fed air conditioning system is designed and modelled such that the performance is not affected even under the dynamic conditions. The proposed system is validated by simulation studies.

 CONCLUSION:

In this study, a novel adaptive constant voltage reference MPPT technique was proposed to extort maximum power from solar panels and simultaneously uses PV voltage and current deviations to track the Maximum power point of a PV array under varying irradiance conditions has been presented in this paper. The fastest MPPT algorithm is simulated and discussed to extract maximum power from solar panels without using DC-DC converters thereby reducing switching losses which in turn increasesr efficiency and reduces the cost for PV array fed BLDC Motor driven air conditioning system. The MATLAB simulation results effectively exhibit that, the proposed adaptive constant voltage MPPT algorithm works fine and shows good dynamic and steady state performance.
