This paper attempts to validate the performance of a power injection control block for Photovoltaic Generation Systems (PVGS). This device uses a control module based on detecting the power injected into the supply by the inverter, instead of measuring the power generated by the PVGS. The performance is evaluated using the concept of Maximum Energy Curve that takes into account both transient and permanent control performance.

The paper presents a basic and simple procedure to obtain a model from the manufacturer characteristic curves of the photovoltaic cells. MA TLAB ® Simulink® is used as simulation tool to obtain the response of the proposed system to changes in temperature and irradiance.
