Abstract A maximum power point tracker for a very high efficiency, compound curve photovoltaic array for a solar powered vehicle is presented. Using an open loop algorithm to achieve maximum power point tracking, synchronous rectification to improve the overall circuit efficiency in a boost converter, and optimising the components according to a weight/ power-loss trade-off, greater than 98% efficiency is achieved.
