Venkatesan et al., International Journal of Advanced Engineering Technology E-ISSN 0976-3945 Research Paper MODELING AND SIMULATION ANALYSIS OF SOLAR PV ENERGY SYSTEM WITH LUO CONVERTER USING STATE-SPACE AVERAGING TECHNIQUE 1 Sundarrajan Venkatesan, 2Manimaran Saravanan Address for Correspondence 1 Assistant Professor, Alagappa chettiar College of Engineering and Technology, Karaikudi, Tamilnadu, India 2 Professor, Thiagarajar College of Engineering, Madurai, Tamilnadu, India. ABSTRACT This paper presents a modeling and simulation analysis of photovoltaic (PV) system with higher order DC-DC LUO converter using state-space averaging technique. The LUO converter has the non-inverting output and its output voltage can be more or less than input voltage with the input current being continuous. The inherent input filtering properties of LUO converter gives better output voltage and current with reduced ripples and increases the efficiency as compared to existing fundamental DC-DC converters. The state-space method is used to model the LUO converter. The PV panel simulink model is developed based on the single diode equivalent circuit of the PV module. The combined PV panel model and state-space model of LUO converter is simulated under varying environmental conditions using MATLAB SIMULINK. Incremental conductance maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithm is used to verify the performance of the LUO converter in a PV system. A circuitry simulation is performed under the same test conditions to validate the state-space model. The simulation result shows that state-space averaging technique yields similar performance as the result from circuitry model. The state-space technique is easier to implement as compared to circuit model. In addition, the controller design for converter in PV system with either simple or complex higher order system such as LUO converter is easily possible.

CUK converter produces the output voltage higher or However, the solar PV energy system has low lower than the input voltage , with reverse polarity conversion efficiency, because of the output power of [18],[19]. The problem can be corrected easily, but solar cells mainly depends on factors such as this will inevitably lead to the increased in size and temperature and irradiance. To maximize the output cost of the converter. At the same time, the SEPIC power of PV and provide a constant or regulated and LUO converter does not suffer from this output voltage, there are a number of MPPT problem.
