The global electrical energy demand is increased gradually and the power generation is not meeting consumer demand due to deficit of fossil.  In this paper, we have been studying and analysis of the Photovoltaic power system operation and electrical characteristics. The PV power system is environmentally friendly such as no pollution and global warming effect. The PV power system is one of the best renewable energy sources and clean energy. This project we have been designed fuzzy logic controller used to track the Maximum power point for a 1.5 kW PV system under various climates.  The proposed model has been designed Matlab software and analysis the simulation results, then we have proved the effectiveness of the proposed MPPT method for the system.
