In the last decade, the use of renewable energy resources instead of fossil fuels pollutants has increased exponentially. Photovoltaic energy generation is ever more important as a renewable resource since it does not cause in fuel costs, pollution, maintenance, and emitting noise compared to other renewable resources as more accessibility of solar irradiation.

This paper presents impact load characteristics on MPPT controller of R, RC, RL and RLC circuit load with Perturb and Observe Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm for a stand-alone photovoltaic system and sees the comparison of each circuit load on the system and the algorithm of control. The different results of power, voltage and current are discussed and shown that the inductor it has a capital effect on Maximum power point (MPP) and system in general. The simulation results and a comparative analysis are discussed in this paper.
