 Abstract
Solar Panel Maximum Power Point Tracker 
”. As the name implied, it is a photovoltaic system that uses the photovoltaic array as a source of electrical power supply and since every photovoltaic (PV) array has an optimum operating point,called the maximum power point, which varies depending on cell temperature, theinsolation level and array voltage. A maximum power point tracker (MPPT) isneeded to operate the PV array at its maximum power point. The objective of thisthesis project is to build two MPPT in parallel to charge a 12-volts lead acid battery by using a field wired 83 Watts PV array.The design consists of a PV array, a 12-volts lead acid battery, DC_DC Boostconverters (also known as step-up converters) and a control section that uses thePIC16F873 microcontroller. The control section obtains the information from the PVarray through microcontroller’s Analog and Digital (A/D) ports and hence to performthe pulse width modulation (PWM) to the converter through its D/A ports. Battery’sstate of charge is also controlled by the microcontroller to protect the battery fromovercharged.The
 Incremental Conductance
method is used as an algorithm to track the maximum power point of the PV array. The performance of the
 Incremental Conductance
 algorithm in tracking maximum power point is better than the
Perturbation and Observation
algorithm. By using
 Incremental Conductance
algorithm the MPPT isable to track the maximum power point of the PV array quickly under rapidlychanging in sun light intensity. While the
Perturbation and Observation
algorithmtends to deviate from the maximum power point under this condition.
