Abstract

Photovoltaic (PV) cell is one of the electrical part to convert photo-light into electricity in order to generate the electrical power. This paper presents the implementation of Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) based Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) controller in evaluating the Maximum Power Point (MPP) output voltage of PV system. Matlab Simulink and Quartus II VHDL software tools are used as simulator of this FPGA, while Altera DE2 board is used as a controller. Both simulator and hardware had shown the same results, which prove that the designed system has been successfully extracting the MPP. The system has been evaluated in sunny day and partially shaded conditions to analyze the respective outputs.
