How does MPPT (Maximum power point tracking) simulink model work?

13 views (last 30 days)
Please explain how a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) Simulink model works.
These are models I have referred on MATLAB File exchange;
In the above models, I tried to check whether the solar module was operating at Maximum Power Point (MPP) by checking if the output from the Buck-Boost converter, to the load, coincided with the MPP for the solar module.
As far as I understand, a solar panel outputs maximum power near the bend of its I/V curve. This can be observed in the following model by varying its load;
A detailed explanation would be highly appreciated.
Thank you.

The method of calculating the maximum power point varies. Which method do you want to talk about?
