Fuzzy Logic Based PhotovoltaicPeak Power Tracking Controller

Motivation

• Solar photovoltaic power is a prime alternative energy source candidate in several countries
• Solar power density with direct overhead incidence is 1 Kw/m2
• High initial solar installation costs
• Low cell conversion efficiency (from 12% on ordinary units up to a maximum of 29% on very special ones)
• Prices for solar cells and power electronics are sharply decreasing
The solar array is generally connected to an energy storage system, which can be constituted by a system of batteries, fuel cells, flywheels, or even the distribution mains
• The solar panel is subjected to varying solar intensity and changes in environmental temperature which, in turn, change the maximum power operating point
• In order to speed up the amortization of installation costs, it is essential to extract the maximum power available on a continuous basis

Current x voltage for temperature variation

Cell Equations
• where

J is the current density (mA/cm2), v is the single voltage cell (V), vp is the total voltage (V) in the array, ip is the array current (A),  is the solar intensity (mW/cm2) and T is the temperature (oC). The parameters k1 (non-dimensional), k2 (mA/cm2)  (voltage coefficient V-1),  (temperature coefficient oC-1) and  (non-dimensional) are adjusted from the manufacturer curves with a multi-linear regression algorithm, where the parameters are calculated to minimize the quadratic error; Ncel is the number of cells in a series string connection that forms the array and Rs is the contact resistance between cells.

Tracking Rules

IF DDCk is P AND DPk is PB THEN DDCk+1 is PB

IF DDCk is P ANDDPk is PSTHENDDCk+1 is PM

IF DDCk is N ANDDPk is PBTHENDDCk+1 is NB

IF DDCk is N ANDDPk is PSTHENDDCk+1 is NM

IF DDCk is P ANDDPk is NBTHENDDCk+1 is NB

IF DDCk is P ANDDPk is NSTHENDDCk+1 is NM

IF DDCk is N ANDDPk is NBTHENDDCk+1 is PB

IF DDCk is N ANDDPk is NSTHENDDCk+1 is PM

Other rules are also necessary, due to the fact that the characteristic curves might change with temperature and sunlight level, leading to an overall shift of the optimum point. In order to keep track of this situation, the system must have the following rules:

IFDDCk is ZANDDPk is PBTHENDDCk+1 is PM

IFDDCk is ZANDDPk is PSTHENDDCk+1 is PS

IFDDCk is ZANDDPk is NBTHENDDCk+1 is NM

IFDDCk is ZANDDPk is NSTHENDDCk+1 is NS

The following rules have been identified for avoiding the stabilizing effect in a region other than that of true peak power:

IFDDCk is P ANDDPk is ZZTHENDDCk+1 is PS

IFDDCk is N ANDDPk is ZZ THENDDCk+1 is NS

Finally, it is necessary to provide the system with a rule that stabilizes the point of operation at a peak power point:

IFDDCk is Z ANDDPk is ZZTHENDDCk+1 is ZZ

Fuzzy Based Photovoltaic System : Conclusion
• A complete fuzzy logic solar array peak power tracking controller has been simulated, designed and implemented in the laboratory
• RISC microcontroller with a fuzzy algorithm that searches for the optimum duty-cycle that transfers the peak power from the solar array to a battery charger
• The advantages of the fuzzy controller are that the control algorithms give fast convergence and robust performance against parameter variation, and can accept noisy and inaccurate signals
• The system was found to reliably stabilize the maximum power transfer in all operating conditions and it is ready to be fitted in a larger installation.
