Abstract

This paper deals with the speed-up effect of maximum power point tracking (MPPT) control for vehicle applications. A photovoltaic panel is set on a car running on a city road and its static characteristics are recorded by the proposed high-speed measurement system. The effectiveness of MPPT controllers with various sampling frequencies is evaluated with the recorded data by simulation. In the car application, a higher sampling frequency achieves higher MPPT efficiency.
