Abstract: This study proposes the challenges faced by the present renewable energy scenario and the contribution of power electronics and maximum power point tracking (MPPT) optimisation techniques. India is one of the leading energy harvester country in the world. Power electronics keep power system operation stable, harvest electric power from renewable energy sources (RESs), and reduce energy consumption. This study has focused on power electronics and MPPT optimisation techniques for wind energy and photovoltaic energy and points out some aspects related to configuration for integration, energy storage technologies, reliability, and grid connection. Apart from this, modern optimisation techniques for MPPT control using artificial intelligence like fuzzy control and neural network control are also presented in this study.

Keywords: energy optimisation; optimisation techniques; renewable energy; wind energy; solar energy; energy storage; maximum power point tracking; MPPT; wind MPPT; solar MPPT; power electronics; artificial intelligence; fuzzy logic; neural network.
