An MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) plays a vital role in a photovoltaic(PV) power generation system. Applying the optimum MPPT is a significant way to achieve an efficient PV system. The MPPT methods' efficiency counts on the two MPPT factors, including the perturbation period and the perturbation amplitude. Nevertheless, realizing MPPT in the photovoltaic array is very hard when the natural conditions change, especially for the temperature and light intensity. This paper proposed a new method based on Conjugate Gradient (CG) to address the problem of hard reasonable considering both dynamic and steady-state performance in some existing MPPT algorithms. Meanwhile, the presented algorithm can effectively adjust the output of PV cells by controlling the boost DC/DC converter. Finally, the experimental and simulation results show the system can quickly get the maximum power point and have performance.
