In producing its power, Photovoltaic (PV) performance is influenced by environmental factors, such as solar irradiance and temperature. System stability is needed to maintain safe operation of the system. This paper presents a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) control model of PV array to improve system reliability and the performance of MPPT. The main parameters in Matlab/Simulink simulation that become the highlight influences are the changes in solar irradiance from 500W/m2 to 1000W/m2 and ambient temperatures from 25°C to 50°C. With the control algorithm that has been made in the Perturb and Observe (P&O) method, it obtains the optimal voltage control point in each PV conditions in a power system. System simulation shows that the voltage stability was maintained above 510 Volt in various conditions of solar irradiance and temperature. The results of the control scheme show the stability of the system and the optimal performance of PV.
