Maximum power point tracker (MPPT) is an important part of photovoltaic system for extracting maximum power from photovoltaic array. MPPT is basically a dc-dc converter. MPPTs are controlled by MPPT algorithms and a number of MPPT algorithms are proposed in literature. Some of the proposed MPPT algorithm is commonly used in applications. In this paper, four commonly used MPPT algorithms (Perturbation&Observe, Incremental Conductance, Only Current Photovoltaic and Short Circuit Current) are modelled with Matlab/Stateflow. These algorithms are tested with Matlab/Simulink model and results are presented.
