This paper presents the simulation of the Bp350 Photovoltaic (PV) module using MATLAB/Simulink. The I–V and P–V characteristics are obtained for varying solar insolation keeping cell temperature constant at room temperature. The effect of a change in temperature is also observed to provide better understanding on the behaviour of the system model. Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) control technique which is based on the Perturb and Observe (P&O) and Incremental Conductance (InCond) is also described.
