Abstract: The present paper relates to solar photovoltaic power system. In this paper the work is done on improving the efficiency of solar photovoltaic power system. In a Photovoltaic system the light coming from sun is directly converted into solar energy. This system as a source of energy becomes very popular nowadays due to some existing benefits like pollution free production of energy and free availability of sun light which is inexhaustible in nature. The main drawback is only output power which is still low, there is a requirement to improve the system. A technique called MPPT is used to track the maximum sun light coming at a particular point to produce maximum power. In this paper tracker works with an incremental conductance algorithm. In the paper simulations are taken to identify the maximum power point by MPPT.
Keywords: PV Module, MPPT Tracker, Incremental Conductance Algorithm, MATLAB.
Scope of the Article: Low-power design
