A low-cost PV Emulator for testing MPPT algorithm

Abstract : The high cost of commercial PV emulators requires finding new solutions for building low-cost system having similar behavior of PV panel. In this work, we present a low-cost emulator using a variable DC supply with a series variable resistor; based the maximum power transfer theorem. On the other hands, a study of the behavior of this emulator is done. The results of experiments test are shown that our PV emulator can provide a simple, efficient and a low-cost way for researchers to test and verify their MPPT algorithms in a laboratory environment.
