How effective is a solar panel MPP tracker?
the effectiveness of MPPTs was emphasized in this forum many times. But does anyone have real data? I talked to an engineer from a solar research company the other day. His opinion: Typical MPPT are too slow for sailing boats. They determine the maximum power point only every 30 to 60 minutes. This is useless under sail, not effective under anchor, and docked you don't need it. Thus the idea sounds good, but is it effective? How is your experience?
