Abstract

This paper proposes the combination of firefly and P&O algorithm to get both of its benefit. Simplified firefly algorithm used for escaping partial shading multi peaks condition due to Partial Shading Condition (PSC). When it goes yet to converge, the algorithm used is switched to faster modified P&O algorithm. This proposed algorithm is to obtain the optimal solution for Maximum Power-Point Tracking (MPPT) of Photovoltaic (PV) system under three shaded conditions. The simulation results are compared with traditional Perturbation and Observation (P&O) and Simplified Firefly Algorithm (SFA) to verify the proposed method performance. The main advantage of proposed algorithm is faster convergence and tracking speed compared to its previous method that is Simplified Firefly Algorithm (SFA).
