Abstract—The characteristics output of solar panels are
nonlinear and change with the environmental factors, so we
need a controller named maximum power point tracker MPPT
to extract the maximum power at the terminals of photovoltaic
generator. In this study we present the two most popular
controllers refers to traditional approach based on the
perturbation & observation (P&O) methods and incremental
conductance (INC). Then we explore a new intelligent controller
based on fuzzy logic. The obtained results under various
conditions of functioning have shown the good tracking and
rapid response to change in different meteorological conditions
of intelligent controller compare with the conventional one.
Index Terms—Fuzzy logic, maximum power point tracking, photovoltaic, P&O, incremental conductance.
