Abstract: In this paper, the applications of artificial intelligence-based methods for tracking the maximum power point have been reviewed and analysed. The reviewed methods are based upon neural networks, fuzzy logic, evolutionary algorithms, which include genetic algorithms, particle swarm optimization, ant colony optimization, and other hybrid methods. Rapid advances in programmable logic devices (PLDs) including field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) give good opportunities to integrate efficiently such techniques for real time applications. An attempt is made to highlight the future trends and challenges in the development of embedded intelligent digital maximum power point tracking (MPPT) controllers into FPGA chip. Special attention is also given to the cost, complexity of implementation, efficiency, and possible practical realization. We believe that this review provides valuable information for engineers, designers and scientist working in this area and show future trends in the development of embedded intelligent techniques for renewable energy systems.
