The present study used a model predictive control (MPC) as internal current controller of a PV system. An external voltage controller with PI controller were used to control the terminal voltages of a PV system to track MPP. Due to its high flexibility, the MPC controller well perform as internal controller in definition of cost function. In MPC controller, the reference current tracks the reference current by fast dynamic without ultra-mutation.
