As the output power of photovoltaic (PV) array changes with the change of external environment and load, the maximum power point tracking (MPPT) technology is needed to bring the efficiency of PV device into full play. In this paper, the chaos search theory is first applied on the MPPT technology of PV system; the chaos search algorithm based on dual carrier increases the adequacy of chaos search and overcomes the blindness of traditional chaos search, thus improves the search efficiency and solves the problem of multiple MPP under partially shadowing conditions. Comparative tests show that the proposed method can track the step response quickly and accurately; at the same time get better optimization result. Simulation and experimental results showed the effectiveness and good performance of the proposed method.
