Due to the variation of solar irradiance, temperature and shading conditions, the power generated by a photovoltaic (PV) module and hence the power delivered to the load changes drastically, which imposes the need for analysis of a complete PV system to get the maximum power under these natural variable conditions. In this paper, a complete off-grid PV module based power generation system has been designed and simulated using MATLAB/Simulink and performance has been scrutinized using the value

The simulation model includes solar PV module, the converter power stage with MPPT control and charge controlling functions and here performance of each block has been examined conspicuously. Eventually, it has been found that the model is quite competent to simulate both the I-V and P-V characteristics of a PV module and based on the result it has been predicted that the performance of several modules or even PV array connected in series and/or in parallel with the delivery of maximum power can be tested under different solar irradiance and temperature conditions.
