Maximum power point tracking (MPPTs) play a vital role in photovoltaic (PV) power systems as it maximize the output power & efficiency of PV systems. MPPTs are used to find and maintain operation at the maximum power point. Title presents in detail implementation of Perturb and Observe MPPT using buck-boost converter. Some results such as current, voltage and output power for various conditions can be recorded. The simulation is possible to carried out in MATLAB/SIMULINK software. The results can be obtained and compared with the theoretical operation which confirm the reliability and performance of the proposed model. It is more efficient, accurate, used rapid and low cost technique without need for complicated mathematical operations. This paper presents Particle Swarm Optimization and Perturbation & Observation techniques to find the optimum operating parameters of a solar photovoltaic panel under varying atmospheric conditions. The terminal voltage, current and corresponding duty-cycle, at which the DC/DC converter should be switched to obtain maximum power output, are determined. Simulation of maximum power point tracking of a solar panel is done, using both methods, in MATLAB. It is observed from the results that the particle swarm optimization based algorithm can track the maximum power point for the whole range of solar data (irradiance and temperature) and has high conversion performance.
