Electricity is one of the main thing in current scenarios, Without that the human can’t live. On the one hand the demand for electricity is gradually increasing, on the other hand the reserves are being drawn out. So it will not be a new thing to point out that some other form of energy needs to being utilized instead of current limited reserved. As the main power which can replace all the other energy is solar energy, many works are being done to improve the efficiency of solar array or photovoltaic cell(PV Cell).
Our works is dedicated to this work in research progress .Maximum Power Point Tracking, frequently referred to as MPPT, is an electronic system that operates the Photovoltaic (PV) modules in a manner that allows the modules to produce all the power they are capable of. MPPT is not a mechanical tracking system that “physically moves” the modules to make them point more directly at the sun. MPPT is a fully electronic system that varies the electrical operating point of the modules so that the modules are able to deliver maximum available power.
As boost convertor is used to level up the DC voltage, Our model consists of a PV Panel, Boost convertor plant model, and the controller circuit . As we develop the algorithm for MPPT the main part of the work is to implement that algorithm which can be done using our controller circuit. For implementation of controller circuit we will be using the FPGA due to their higher speed and parallel programming technique. vii Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are reprogrammable silicon chips. It is an integrated circuit designed to be configured after manufacturing – hence "fieldprogrammable”. The FPGA configuration is generally specified using a hardware description language (HDL), similar to that used for an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC). We will be designing a boost convertor plant to operate in Maximum power point possible using FPGA chips.
