TableĀ 1 Parameters used to compare MPPT algorithms

From: A review study of photovoltaic array maximum power tracking algorithms

Parameters Statement
PV array dependent/independent Methods can be applied to any PV array with or without the knowledge of its configuration and parameter values
True MPPT The MPPT algorithm can operate at maxima or others. If the actual MPP is not the true MPP, then the output power will be less than the expected one actually
Types of circuitry Analog or digital
Periodic tuning Is there an oscillation around the MPP or not
Convergence speed It is the amount of time required to reach MPP
Implementation complexity This standard describes the method in general
Sensors It depends on the number of variables under consideration
