Ripple correlation control (RCC) is a fast, robust online optimization technique. RCC is particularly suited for switching power converters, where the inherent ripple provides information about the system operating point. The present work examines a digital formulation that has reduced power consumption and greater robustness. A maximum power point tracker for a photovoltaic panel demonstrates greater than 99% tracking accuracy and fast convergence.
