Abstract

Approximate gradient method is improved for the maximum power point tracking (MPPT) of photovoltaic generation system. The improvements are implemented by: (1) applying constant voltage tracking method to narrow the search range when external conditions change drastically; (2) adding constraint conditions to optimize the power curve. Based on the simulation of the original and improved approximate gradient methods, it is shown that the improved method ameliorates the tracking performance by avoiding the defeats as “divide by zero error”, tracking failure and oscillation.
