A Novel Adaptive Neural MPPT Algorithm for Photovoltaic System
This paper presents a novel adaptive neural network (ANN) for maximum power point tracking (MPPT) in photovoltaic (PV) systems under variable working conditions. The ANN-based MPPT model includes two separate NNs for PV system identification and control. NNs are trained by using of a novel back propagation algorithm in pre/post control phases. Because of online optimal performance of NNs, the proposed method, not only overcome the common drawbacks of the conventional MPPT methods, but also gives a simple and a robust MPPT scheme. Simulation results, which carried on MATLAB, show that proposed controller is the most effective in comparison with conventional MPPT approaches.
