Maximum Power Point Control Simplifies Energy Harvesting

There is an increasing market for low power electronic devices located in remote locations, away from the power grid. Ideally, the power for these devices should be generated on-site using renewable energy. Perhaps the most visible form of renewable energy is from the sun. Converting this solar energy into electrical energy is easily done using Linear Technology’s LTC3105 boost converter with Maximum Power Point Control. The MPPC feature allows the converter to extract the maximum power from a solar cell under varying sunlight conditions.
