Power has become an important source in our life as our need increases with demand. It became fourth basic need in this industrial area and is important to increase the source of energy. There are only two sources such as renewable and non-renewable energy sources, available in this world. Since the capital cost and transportation cost are high and also scarcity in source for non-renewable energy sources such as fossil fuels are increased, now human has to find an alternate for power generation with low capital cost investment. Renewable resources such as biomass, wind and sunlight are abundant in the world and reduce the risk of scarcity of non-renewable energy source demand. In this paper, photovoltaic array is utilized to supply the load. Interrupted power supply to load may reduce the output efficiency. In order to overcome this issue, DSP controller with boost converter along with a battery is employed to reduce the issue of interruption of power.
