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

Algorithm 2

ACO-MPPT.
Result: MPPT parameter to achieve MPP
Initialize the ACO parameters
while the termination criteria not achieved (MPP) do
  For (each ant 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 pheromone for each ant: ,
  (i) Calculate the solution
  (b) Apply evaporation and globally update the ants position, according to the optimum solutions calculated earlier
