Abstract


This paper proposes a single stage current source inverter based photovoltaic system with single axis automatic sun tracking system. The system consists of transformer less single stage conversion for tracking the maximum power point which is maintained by a fuzzy logic controller. The Hardware system presents the fuzzy logic control based sun tracking system using an Arduino controller. To improve the power quality and system efficiency, a double-tuned parallel resonant circuit is added to eliminate the 2nd and 4th order harmonics at the inverter side. A Stepper motor aids in tracking the sun axis and keeps the panel in line direction with sun all day long. The efficiency of the solar cells has been enhanced by the proposed design system. The proposed fuzzy logic controller has been implemented and tested using MATLAB Simulink environment. Moreover, the said sun tracking power generation system has been tested in real time using an Arduino controller.

Author Keywords: Maximum power point tracking, Arduino controller, Fuzzy logic controller, Power quality.
