This paper presents a new meta-heuristic bio-inspired optimization algorithm which is called Cuttle Fish Optimization algorithm (CFO).CFO is based on the color changing behavior of cuttlefish to find the optimal solution. The patterns and colors that are seen in cuttlefish are produced by reflected light from different layers of cells and it is the combination of certain cells at once that allows cuttlefish to possess such a large array of patterns and colors. In this paper the Solar Photo Voltaic (SPV) array is used which is receiving wide attention now days because the everlasting solar energy is the best alternative to the conventional energy sources. This work primarily focuses on the design and development of an efficient solar photovoltaic array utilizing a Landsman Converter with PID controller. Fuzzy logic controller and CuttleFish optimization techniques are used for the optimized control of the converter output voltage. The CuttleFish optimization technique has been found to provide better results for randomly varying atmospheric conditions as compared to the existing control schemes. This topology is designed and modeled in MATLAB/Simulink platform and its performance under varying environmental conditions is studied. Moreover the efficiency of the PV array for various control schemes is analyzed rigorously.
