The FOCV method assumes that maximum power can be found on the ratio of the open circuit voltage.
MPPT] values for FOCV are illustrated with red diamonds and red circles respectively.
In this study, SBS, FOCV, SHC, SA search algorithms are utilized and compared under partial shading conditions.
In the table Lowest extracted power value is the reported for the FOCV.
Also, FOCV had a significantly lower efficiency than others under partial shading conditions.
The FOCV technique is simple and fast method but it is not a accurate method.
