Photo Voltaic (PV), Maximum Power Point Tracker (MPPT), Incremental Conduction (INC), THD, PWM, MATLAB/Simulink,


This paper discuss the Incremental Conduction based MPPT for tracking the solar power. Due to increment of power demand here to find the new type of generation system. The concept of Renewable Energy Source (RES) is now become a most popular for generation of power. There are basically three types of RES is used for generation process, Wind, PV, fuel cell. Solar system is one of the best RES technique for generation of electrical power but it have some drawback. It is only used in the daytime and has low efficiency. For improving the efficiency of the system here maximum power tracking is needed. Here Incremental Conduction based MPPT for tracking the solar power is used. The whole model is simulated in MATLAB /SIMULINK for checking the performance of the system and is applicable to different type of domestic loads. The THD of the system is calculated.
