Solar battery chargerPublic

The purpose of this project is to design a highly efficient solar charger. The system will track and operate at the maximum power of a solar panel meant to charge the battery of an iPod MP3 player. A DC to DC converter is used to boost the voltage produced by the solar panel to a higher voltage needed to charge the battery. A control syslem was designed to insure optimum operation near the point of maximum power transfer. A reasonable agreement between the simulation and the experimental was observed.
