Generation of electric power from renewable energy systems like photovoltaic (PV) can feed the world with its need from energy. The generation of electricity from PV can be maximized using of maximum power point tracking (MPPT) system. In this chapter, different techniques for MPPT under normal and partial shading conditions with their simulation and experimental setup have been introduced and discussed. An assessment for these techniques has been introduced and the comparison between the conventional techniques like hill climbing, incremental conductance, and perturb-and-observe has been compared with smart techniques using fuzzy logic controller (FLC) and particle swarm optimization techniques.
