A Review on Solar MPPT system and its Application

Authors(4) :-Nusba Saiyed, Prachi Rana, Mrunali Khanvilkar, Sachin Patel

Solar energy is viewed as the most optimistic form of natural resources in the current century. The photovoltaic material is being developed to improve the efficiency of solar energy conversion. The paper focuses, mostly on the efficiency of the solar panel, in relation to the sunlight angle with respect to the panel surface. A solar tracking system for reusable energy is enhanced and made to absorb free energy from the sun, store it in the battery, and transform this energy to dc voltage. The use of stepper motor enables accurate tracking of the sun. LDR resistors can be used to determine the solar light intensity. A brief review is done over photovoltaic characteristics, design of tracking system and the software used for simulation model. A microcontroller based design methodology of an automatic solar tracker is presented in this paper.
