VARGAS, Juan et al. Analysis of the use of micro DC/DC converters focused on the maximum extraction of energy in photovoltaic farm. Enfoque UTE [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.1, pp.205-217. ISSN 1390-6542.

This work presents an extended study of the work published in the magazine INCISCOS 2018 titled “Improving of the Photovoltaic High Power Plant Generation Using DC/DC Micro Converters”, and intented to increase the amount of electrical energy generation of a Photovoltaic Plant located in Salinas, Imbabura Province, Ecuador through the implementation of DC/DC converters in the solar panel arrays and tracking techniques of the maximum power point. The results show that the insertion of the DC/DC converters in the system causes an increase in the amount of active power. The system is analiced in variation of solar radiation or changes in the ambient temperature as well.

Keywords : power generation control; solar panels; photovoltaic cells; maximum power point trackers; switching converters; DC/DC converters; energy management..
