Hossein Dastres; Ali Mohammadi; Behrooz Rezaie

Volume 7, Issue 4 , Autumn 2020, , Pages 30-43

  This paper deals with the problem of maximizing the extracted power from a wind turbine in the presence of model uncertainties and input saturation. An adaptive second-order integral terminal sliding mode speed control method is utilized to address this problem. The presented method benefits from the ...  Read More

2. An Intelligent PV Panel Structure to Extract the Maximum Power in Mismatch Irradiance

Abdolreza Esmaeli

Volume 2, Issue 1 , Winter 2015, , Pages 25-31

  a new intelligent photovoltaic (PV) panel structure to extract the maximum power in mismatch irradiance is proposed. In conventional structures, difference of irradiance between series panels can cause the deviation of maximum power point. In this condition tracking MPP becomes difficult and reduces ...  Read More
