Abstract

The nonlinearity of solar irradiation and temperature leads to unstable photovoltaic (PV) outputs and decrease in efficiency. A method based on experimental study is developed to maximize the output of the PV panels using the combination of PV cooling system and fuzzy logic, fuzzy logic (FL)-based constant voltage (CV) maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithm. The PV cooling system reduces the PV panel temperature to the optimum temperature, while the FL-based CV MPPT algorithm tracks the maximum power of the PV panel. Experimental results showed that the combination of the two methods in a PV system results in improving the photovoltaic performances. Thus, the PV panel outputs increase when the PV panel works at its optimum temperature. This integrated FL-based CV MPPT controller proves the effectiveness in improving PV performances for any weather condition.
