With the increasing demand for renewable energy, solar power has emerged as a promising option for sustainable power generation. However, the effectiveness and efficiency of solar power systems rely on the ability to effectively manage their performance, making it essential to develop efficient control models. This paper proposes a novel ensemble predictive control model for solar deployments using bio-inspired optimizations to improve load-connected solar deployments’ performance. The proposed model integrates multiple control devices, including Maximum Power Point Tracker, Proportional-Integral-Derivative, Proportional-Integral, and Fuzzy Logic Controllers, to selectively control the solar Photovoltaic systems. The proposed model incorporates a predictive control operation utilizing an LSTM-GRU (Long Short-Term Memory-Gated Recurrent Unit) with the VARMA (Vector Auto-Regressive Moving Average) model, which can accurately predict the future power generation of the solar system. This feature can facilitate efficient energy management and increase the system’s performance for different use cases. Implement a SEPIC (Single Ended Primary Inductor Capacitor) converter design to improve the system’s overall efficiency levels. To validate the effectiveness of the proposed approach, the author conducted experiments using real-world data and compared the proposed results with other control strategies. The results demonstrate that the ensemble predictive control model based on bio-inspired optimizations outperforms the existing control models regarding accuracy, efficiency, and stability levels. The proposed model has the potential to significantly improve the performance of load-connected solar deployments, offering a more practical approach to solar power generation. The combination of predictive control operations with bio-inspired optimizations can facilitate the design of sustainable energy systems with higher efficiency and accuracy.
