Metaheuristic Optimization of Fractional Order Incremental Conductance (FO-INC) Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)

Algorithm 1

PSO-MPPT.
Result: MPPT parameter to achieve MPP
Initialize the PSO parameters (N, C1, C2, Wmin, Wmax, Vmax)
while the termination criteria not achieved (MPP) do
  For (each Particle i)
   Simulate and calculate the MPP and the cost function. if
   then
    The Best Cost (i) = Cost Function (i)
     The Best Solution (i) = The particle (i)
   else
    The Best Cost (i) = The Best Cost (i − 1)
     The Best Solution (i) = The Best Solution (i − 1)
   end
   (a) Update the velocity (V):
   where is inertia, is cognitive component and is social component
   (b) Update the position of particles:
