Desain dan Implementasi Zeta Converter dengan Metode MPPT Modified P&O pada Aplikasi Rumah Mandiri
Solar panels have an important role in generating renewable electrical energy. Solar panels are
used as the conversion of solar light energy into electrical energy. Solar panels can supply the
needs of small, medium and large scale electricity. In generating electrical energy this panel has a
weakness that is the output power is not maximal and the value of low efficiency. In addition, the
output power on the solar panel is fluctuating as it is affected by the degree of light irradiation
received on the surface of the solar panel. Many methods can be used to overcome the weaknesses
in solar panels one of them by using the Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) method. In this
research MPPT method used Modified Perturb & Observe to maximize the output of solar panel
power and reduce ripple output used for setting duty cycle as ignition switching Zeta converter.
The Zeta converter is one dc-dc converter that has the role of rising and lowering the voltage on
the output side with low voltage ripple. The suggested method has been shown to perform better
than the P & O method. The MPPT modified P & O method as the maximum power trace on solar
panels applied to the Zeta converter produces a maximum power of 478.38 Watt.
