Comparative Study Between Controllers for Tracking Systems in a Microgrid

Mauricio F. Mauledoux M., Oscar F. Avilés S., Edilberto Mejía R., Oscar I. Caldas F. and Angie J. Valencia    

Abstract: The implementation of renewable energy systems is a growing activity, due to lack of nature reserves, the pollution excess and the continuous demand in the use of energy supply for the common life needs. This means that people must change the way they use the environmental resources to get it, using green energy as that provided by wind or solar sources. Therefore, this work shows the results obtained after performing a comparative analysis between the static behaviors and those achieved using the following controllers in a single axis solar Photovoltaic (PV) tracking system: fuzzy, servo system and MIT rule-based. The PV modules position were defined according to the maximum solar irradiance, when the sun reaches its zenith (90°). The data used in the controllers design and simulation were collected during a meteorological study made with the weather station of the regional environmental authority (CAR), located in Militar Nueva Granada University’s Campus at Cajica, Colombia.
