Maximum Power Point Control Simplifies Energy Harvesting

42 ratings | 17796 views
There is an increasing market for low power electronic devices located in remote locations, away from the power grid. Ideally, the power for these devices should be generated on-site using renewable energy. Perhaps the most visible form of renewable energy is from the sun. Converting this solar energy into electrical energy is easily done using Linear Technology's LTC®3105 boost converter with Maximum Power Point Control. The MPPC feature allows the converter to extract the maximum power from a solar cell under varying sunlight conditions.

What is the "Max. PV input power" Rating on the controller chart in the MPPT (EPEVER) manual? Mine is a 20 Amp - rated at 260 watts Input... I have 300 watts of panels does that meen that the controller will blow up if I try to use it with those 300w panels? or is the actual input less than 400 watts due to loss in wires and partial sun ect. ? In other words, Do I have to definitely buy a 30 amp MPPT controller rated at 390 watts or can I get away with the 20 amp unit rated at 260 watts? Or- to go further...would the 40 Amp be more efficient being it's rated at 560 watts?

I like your presentation but I do not understand the concept. I am undertaking a project that involves the use a MPP tracker. I will be glad if you could throw more light on the subject
There are some scientific paper showing this results?

At 2:10 why is current inversely proportional to voltage? i thought that if you increased one, you increase the other.

The reason involves the internal series and shunt resistances of a solar cell, in addition to the effects of temperature on the p-n junction.
