This paper presents a modeling of photovoltaic (PV) module in PSCAD/EMTDC and design of maximum power point tracking (MPPT) using boost converter. The model can be used for simulation studies of grid interface applications using voltage source converter in the PSCAD. The validity of the PV model developed has been verified using the set of data collected experimentally. In order to extract maximum power from the PV module the boost converter can be controlled through the Hill Top algorithm. All the simulation study has been done in the PSCAD/EMTDC simulation software.
