Photovoltaic (PV) system is one of the solution to the energy and environmental issue. It offer possibility of converting sunlight to electricity. Unfortunately, the conversion efficiency of electric power generation are very low especially under low irradiation condition and the amount of electric power generated by solar array change continuously with weather condition. In order to overcome this problem, Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) is being used. This project proposes to design Perturb and Observe (P&O) controller in order to maintain maximum power delivered by the PV system. The performance of proposed method is evaluated by using Matlab/Simulink and Arduino Mega. The proposed method is capable to maximise the power point for PV system.
