With the development of social productivity the social demand for energy is growing and energy crisis is increasing with each passing day. In renewable energy solar energy with ample storage, environmental protection and other features, it has been the most potential development energy. But photovoltaic generations exists major problems, firstly  the PV Curve Shows multiple  peaks curve in a partial shaded environments, traditional methods of maximum power point easy to fall into local optimum mistakes, tracking result was low in accuracy and slow in convergence, secondly because of independent photovoltaic power generation system in which the environment is very bad so the storage part state influencing factors such as illuminations, temperature they are easy to change and the P-V curve of power generation system exhibits multiple peaks which reduces the effectiveness of conventional maximum power point tracking methods This thesis research on MPPT issues the operational characteristics of PV modules are initially investigated in order to explore the impact of solar irradiation conditions on the current–voltage and power–voltage characteristics of PV modules and derive the corresponding operational requirements of a global MPPT algorithm, which is suitable for applications of PV modules.
