Although solar energy is one of the most available renewable energy resources, its usage is strongly influenced by environmental and technological aspects. PhotoVoltaic (PV) offers an environmentally friendly source of electricity, which is however still relatively costly today. In order to minimize the output power cost, the Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) of the PV output for all sunshine conditions is a key factor to maximize the power output of a PV system for assigned conditions of radiation and temperature. The core of the MPPT is represented by the implemented algorithm devoted to find and maintain the operation near to the Maximum Power Point (MPP).
