Design of Intelligent Maximum Power Point Tracking Controller for Solar Photovoltaic Based Brushless DC Motor

An investigation into the design of intelligent maximum power point tracking controller for a solar photovoltaic system at maximum power output for varying levels of temperature and solar irradiation is presented. The Photovoltaic system comprises a solar PV module, DC-DC boost converter, Inverter and permanent magnet Brushless D.C. motor (BLDC) as a load. The proposed Genetic assistance has enabled the optimization of hidden nodes and also the size of the layers of the network. The GA-RBF-NN is trained faster than MLP which minimizes the possibility of convergence to local minima.
