Abstract – This paper presented simulation of incremental conductance (I.C) Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) for in solar power systems with direct control method. The main difference of the proposed system to the existing system is to reduce conduction loss and the constant output current is obtained. The resultant system is capable of tracking the MPPs accurately and rapidly without steady-state oscillation, and also, its dynamic performance is satisfactory. The I.C algorithm is used to track the maximum from the solar array because it performs precise control under rapidly changing atmospheric conditions. A Cuk converter has to be designed for the DC/DC conversion process. It operates at discontinuous mode which is preferable for a wide operating range. This system could be used for battery charging. The power output from the photovoltaic system has the capacity to meet the household demands like electric cars, electric cycles, led lamps.
