Among the renewable energy resources, the energy due to the PhotoVoltaic (PV) effect can be considered the most essential and prerequisite sustainable resource because of the ubiquity, abundance, and sustainability of solar radiant energy. In this paper, solar panel is designed based on single diode model. Incremental conductance based MPPT are implemented for directly controlling the duty ratio of cuk converter. Unlike the conventional MPPT which generates the reference voltage to be tracked by the converter, direct control MPPT generates duty ratio for switching the switch of a cuk converter.
