Abstract

A novel model-free solution algorithm, swarm algorithm for efficiently solving the maximum power point tracking (MPPT) problem of PV systems under partial shading conditions. A PV system which controls the power generation with its operating voltage is considered. A swarm algorithm (SA) model is incorporated into the iterative search process to guide the update of candidate solutions (operating voltage settings) in the SA and such extension is capable of improving the tracking performance. Simulation studies and experiments are conducted to validate the effectiveness of the proposed SA algorithm for better addressing PV MPPT problems considering a variety of partial shading conditions. The performance of the proposed algorithm is benchmarked against the JAYA and the particle swarm optimization (PSO), which has been widely considered in the model-free MPPT, to demonstrate its advantages. Results of simulation studies and experiments demonstrate that the SA algorithm converges faster and provides a higher overall tracking efficiency.
