Solarcom is a French company that is dedicated to supply, through solar energy, remote telecommunication devices such as repeaters of fiber optics or phone antennas. The project is commissioned by Solarcom for the EPS work team from ENIT, and consists in realize the design of a voltage regulator, based on maximum power point tracking algorithms (MPPT), to control the operating point of the power source formed by an array of photovoltaic panels, thus improving their performance and make effective control over the method and charge status of the battery. First is done a management, is explained in the first chapter, how is managed the different resources during the time to finish the project in the deadline. In the second chapter is made a little State of art to know how is the actual market in this area ant to decide the specifications and price target. To make the design of the device is necessary to model the physical environment in which the voltage regulator work to validate step by step, through simulation, different algorithms and components which will be based regulator. The software chosen to realize the mathematical models of the different physical devices on which operation of voltage regulator depends is MATLAB 2010b, the models were made by modeling and simulation tool SIMULINK. The hardware design of the device is implemented in Solid Works, and in this chapter is explained every component that is inside the device, how it function and why it’s selected. In this chapter is showed all necessary to build it physically. In the software design chapter is explained every function used to make the regulator functional and implemented it in microcontroller, the code is made in C++ language by Code Warrior for Mororolla.
