Description

A single solar cell provides close to 0.5 V output at its maximum power point, which is very

low for any electronic circuit to operate. To get rid of this problem,

A single solar cell provides close to 0.5 V output at its maximum power point, which is very

low for any electronic circuit to operate. To get rid of this problem, traditionally multiple

solar cells are connected in series to get higher voltage. The disadvantage of this approach

is the efficiency loss for partial shading or mismatch. Even as low as 6-7% of shading can

result in more than 90% power loss. Therefore, Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)

at single solar cell level is the most efficient way to extract power from solar cell.
