In many research centers around the world, had been researched models that accurately represent the PV modules operation. In this context, this paper presents a modeling of photovoltaic modules, which aims to simplify the simulation of photovoltaic systems in MATLAB®/Simulink. The model in question has not been very explored in the literature and, therefore, this paper has the purpose of evaluating its results connecting the model to a boost converter, being its main function the Maximum Power Point Tracking applying one of the most known methods, the P&O (Perturb & Observe). Furthermore, this converter elevates the voltage generated by the photovoltaic modules, in order to connect the PV array to the grid through an inverter. This paper also presents a good correlation between the theoretical and practical results from the modeling of the photovoltaic cell, and was observed a high efficiency of the implemented MPPT algorithm.
