Abstract: The solar energy being clean, green & commercially modest, have become one of the most prevalent choice amongst the renewable sources of electrical energy. Utilization of energy generated from Solar photovoltaic (SPV) system rest on the maximum extraction of the power generated. Ideal maximum power point (MPP) tracking (MPPT) is used to transfer 100% generated power from source and transfer it to load. In literature of recent years, a good number of publications found on SPV systems and MPPT. In this paper most popular MPPT techniques Perturb & Observe (PO) and Incremental Conductance (IC) methods are simulated and implemented. The comparison is also presented on the ground of parameters like tracking time, tracking efficiency etc.
Keywords: Solar Photovotaic (SPV), MPPT, Perturb and Observe (PO) Method, Incremental Conductance method (IC); MATLAB/Simulink.
