Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm for different drives serving different application is the current interest of many researchers. In this paper a P & O (P&O) based MPPT controller is designed to investigate the performance of BLDC motor. Here Perturb and Observe (P&0) based MPPT controller with and without interleaved converter is compared. The proposed model and controller methodology provides reduced current and voltage ripple and promotes efficiency. The speed control of BLDC is also tested for its novel working under different load condition. The model is designed in Matlab Simulink to ensure its novel working and also compared with traditional Boost Converter (BC). The proposed model outperforms the traditional BC as per the claim made.
