    I am simulating a photovoltaic maximum power point tracker circuit in Simulink. Discontinuities within an algebraic loop has been detected and as result the circuit is not simulating. Please anybody with an idea should help me out. Thanks

    I can't offer too much about your problem -- sorry -- but I just had to say that "discontinuities within an algebraic loop" just sounds like a great techno-babble phrase for a sci-fi flick! :D

    Good luck on getting the real thing resolved. The only suggestion I would make would be to look for things that might cause something to go singular. Or perhaps tweaking a model so that sharp transistions actually occur more smoothly over a narrow range to keep derivatives in check.
