Abstract:   (3744 Views)
In this paper, the Vector Based Swarm Optimization method is used for designing an optimal controller for the maximum power point tracker of a stand-alone PV System. The proposed algorithm is executed on vectors in a multi-dimension vector space. These vectors by appropriated orientation converge to a global optimum while the algorithm runs. The Remarkable point of the VBSO algorithm is how using completely random coefficients have good influence on algorithm performance. The generated energy is delivered to a boost converter including a resistive load. The duty cycle of the converter’s switch is determined in order to minimize generated power deviation, relative to PV voltage.
