Comparative Study of MPPT Control of Grid-Tied PV Generation by Intelligent Techniques
A grid-tied photovoltaic (PV) system with boost converter is considered for study here. The maximum power point tracking (MPPT) control on the duty cycle of the boost converter is achieved by intelligent techniques such as grey wolf optimization (GWO), Moth-Flame optimization (MFO) and compared with perturb and observe (P&O) method. The proposed approach of MFO reduces the ripples in power, voltage and current and imparts better efficiency under different configurations as compared to latest literature for a similar approach.
