This MATLAB code is dedicated to the implementation of the Incremental Conductance Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm for optimizing the power output of solar panels. The code considers key characteristics of the solar panel, including the open-circuit voltage (Voc), short-circuit current (Isc), and the number of series-connected cells (Ns). It seeks to find the voltage at which the solar panel operates at its maximum power point.
The code begins with an initial guess for the MPPT voltage, followed by a perturbation step size (delta) and a convergence tolerance (tolerance). It then enters an iterative loop to calculate the incremental conductance and adjust the voltage based on the panel's characteristics. The loop continues until the maximum power point is reached within the defined tolerance.
The results, including the maximum power point voltage and the corresponding maximum power, are displayed in the command window. Additionally, the code plots the I-V (current-voltage) curve of the solar panel and marks the maximum power point for visualization.
