A hybrid power management unit was developed to interface photovoltaic energy to loads, and meeting its challenges such as variation of power, unregulated voltage and limited power, the unit implements a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) to maximize the output power under environmental variations. The power management system proposed applies photovoltaic harvested energy effectively to mobile devices. It mainly consists of an MPPT block and a Power Distribution Control Unit (PDCU). Different cases of operation exist depending on the availability of power, load needs, and battery state of charge. Analysis and simulation results are provided to demonstrate system functionality and sensitivity.
