International Journal of Renewable Energy Technology (IJRET), Vol. 6, No. 1, 2015

Abstract: This paper presents the design, control and performance of a low power standalone solar-photovoltaic (PV) energy generating system. The system includes a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) controller along with a full bridge DC-DC converter, an energy storage system and a voltage source inverter (VSI). The detailed design and modelling of the system components are given with incremental conductance (IC) approach as a MPPT method. A cascaded controller of the VSI is designed to regulate output voltage and current under varying loads. The performance of the system is presented under varying radiations and different consumer loads.
