Abstract: Drying of anchovy is an important activity carried out on one of the dried fish products. In this research, the process is done to improve the quality of drying of anchovy by removing some water content to the extent that microbes can not grow and maximize the absorption of solar light with solar collector and solar cell position control. This simulation results in Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) using ATMEGA32 mocrocontroler in order to reduce heat loss and also energy from sunlight. With MPPT and flat plate solar collectors can follow the direction of the sun movement with an angle of 900 so that the angle between the solar collector and solar panel perpendicular to the sun. The design of MPPT simulation and drying tool is aimed to dry the anchovy from the initial moisture content ± 90% to> 10%. This research is done by experimental method that is by observing and measuring the things done on the dryer and then processing and evaluation of research data. The conclusion of the simulation result analysis is the MPPT simulation circuit using Proteus program has been running as it should by paying attention to not the appearance of error listing in the simulation. Light Dependent Resistor(LDR) as light detection from simulation able to drive servo motor according to direction of sunlight with range of angle 00 -1800 , and back to move servo motor position of origin 00 . LDR is designed by detecting angle shift of light that move horizontal servo motor is optimal with range of angle 00 – 1800 so that light detected the error rate is very small against solar panels and solar collectors.
