Title

Intelligent optimal control of a grid independent photovoltaic system using adaptive critic designs and fuzzy logic

Keywords and Phrases

Particle swarm optimization (PSO)

Abstract

"The work depicted in this thesis - and the author's research as a whole - centers on an optimal energy management system. Specifically, this research focuses on the development of two controllers for optimally controlling a grid independent photovoltaic system. The first controller uses Action Dependent Heuristic Dynamic Programming (ADHDP), while the second uses fuzzy logic, with membership functions optimized using Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO)--Abstract, leaf iv.
