The limitations of the conventional MPPT technique are oscillations of the system at steady state leading to energy loss, slower response and the occurrence of drift. A simple zonal based MPPT controller is proposed in this paper which addresses the above limitations without additional requirement of sampling or sensors apart from the basic voltage and current sensors. The proposed system is simple, cost effective and easy to implement. Phase shift reference (Duty) for the DC-DC converter is varied dynamically by the proposed MPPT controller depending upon the operating point voltage to have a better dynamic response. The error in the perturbation direction, if any, is corrected by the controller while computing the change in duty reference ΔD). This ensures the drift free operation. The response speed of the proposed controller is improved compared to the conventional controller by having a variable step size. Solar PV fed full bridge series resonance DC-DC converter with resistive load is considered for evaluating the proposed control scheme. The performance of the proposed MPPT control technique is verified by simulations and hardware results. © 2016 IEEE.
