This communication is centered on the optimization of a photovoltaic mill system performance operating on the sun race. According to the character of the alimented charge which is a DC motor that is running a cereal mill and the meteorological conditions (temperature and light), we can find a big difference between the potential maximal power and the other on which is really transferred to the charge. In order to ameliorate the global output of the system, we use an adapted circuit composed of a boost converter remoted by Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) with a MPPT command (Maximum Power Point Tracking). With the Perturb and Observe ((P&O) algorithm, the MPPT control measure the current and the pressure of the photovoltaic generator field to calculate the power released by this one. According to the result obtained, the MPPT control will adjust the cyclical report of the converter to bring the system to the optimal functioning point. The modelisation then simulation of the system (PV generator, boost converter, Pulse Width Modulation which the MPPT algorithm as for as the direct current charge) are after done with the Matlab/ Simulink software.
