Abstract: There are different MPPT techniques to track the maximum power point. When a PV system is directly connected to the load the operating point seldom lies in the maximum power point, whereas it lies at some other point. Thus the effective utilization of PV cannot be done. But using MPPT techniques the system is always made to operate at peak point irrespective of any changes in atmospheric condition. The Proposed method gives better result in terms of output power and hence efficiency of the converter. This method is a trade-off between steady state accuracy and dynamic tracking by using variable step size instead of fixed step size as like P and O method. The system gives very poor performance when connected directly without mppt. An experimental analysis was conducted to validate the effectiveness of the proposed MPPT method. The proposed method was compared with the conventional Perturb and Observance method and was found that for every environmental conditions like, change in irradiance, angle of tilt, shading, soiling, colour filter, mounting the proposed method gives better power output and efficiency than P and O method. Hardware testing is done to analyze the method.
