Conference paper


PV system is generally applied with DC–DC converter and a battery. The system is always operated at maximum power point, and its tracking is known as maximum power point tracking (MPPT). Several comparisons have been based on MPPT. In this article, a comparison has been made with conventional perturb and observe (P&O) with intelligent fuzzy logic controller. In this article, the system is designed to operate for an islanding mode without a battery which would reduce the cost of a battery. The model is simulated in MATLAB and the obtained simulated result shows that the performance of intelligent optimized fuzzy logic controller is better than conventional P&O method.
