Abstract: Increasing the efficiency of MPPT techniques is the essential aspects of the Solar Photovoltaic System. This efficiency is affected by the chattering available with the MPPT techniques. An MPP technique which generates less chattering in the system is more efficient than the others. This paper presents the chattering analysis of the popular Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) techniques Perturb & Observe (P&O) and Incremental conductance method for the fixed and variable step size. The algorithms are simulated under similar load and environment conditions. In the result it is found that the incremental conductance method has very less chattering in comparison with the P&O for the fixed step size and variable step size. Further, for the different solar radiation chattering is observed and tabulated.
