Peak Power Controller

James McGuire & Thomas Burke


The Peak Power Controller acts as an impedance transformer between the source and load. It monitors the power output from the source and dynamically adjusts the effective load impedance to maintain operation at the peak power point. The 68HC908QT4-based controller operates as a boost converter, maximizing the input power.
