Abstract

Photovoltaic (PV) cell is one of the most available renewable and clean sources of energy. Harnessing the power from the solar panel is costlier than other sources. The maximum power point tracking (MPPT) helps to utilize the maximum power and also improves the system efficiency of PV panel and therefore reduces the overall cost of system. Normally, the voltage and current relationship is nonlinear and maximum power point (MPP) varies according to the solar irradiance. The MPPT consist of a DC-DC converter and a MPPT algorithm. This paper presents a simulation of perturb and observe (P&O) MPPT algorithm and single ended primary inductor converter (SEPIC) by using a simulation software powersim(PSIM). The simulation shows that the DC-DC converter extract maximum power from the panel using MPPT algorithm.
