Since environmental parameters like solar irradiance and wind speed affect the power map and maximum power point (MPP) of photovoltaic (PV) and wind energy conversion systems (WECS), we propose extremum-seeking (ES), which is a model-free real-time optimization algorithm, for maximum energy harvest or maximum-power-point-tracking (MPPT) in such systems.
