Solar powered BLDC motor drive for agricultural application
Author(s): Anastasios Sextos
Abstract: This paper deals with the utilization of solar PV array to drive the Brushless DC motor for tiller machine application. Solar PV array maximum power extracted using DC-DC converter and maximum power point tracking algorithm. Simple perturb and observe method is employed to achieve the maximum efficiency of the solar PV array. The reason that Brushless dc motor has been chosen for the project is that these motors are cheaper and more robust than the more conventional DC motor. The tiller machine used for small land cultivation and compared to diesel tiller machine or tractor which are low maintenance, long life and more efficient. The renewable energy such that the solar power used to drive the BLDC motor. The simulation and hardware of solar fed BLDC motor has been carried out.
