This paper presents a new approach of the Design and simulation of a photovoltaic cell using decrement resistance algorithm for maximum power point tracking (MPPT). The Simulation is done in the MATLAB. The algorithm detects the maximum power point of the photovoltaic (PV) cell. It includes module BP SX 150S for a solar photovoltaic. This module provides a maximum power of 150 W. The current-voltage (I-V) & power-voltage (P-V) characteristics are obtained for various values of solar irradiance keeping the cell temperature constant. The points indicating module voltage Vmp and current Imp at maximum Power Pmax are obtained. Keywords: PV Module, MPPT, MATLAB/ Simulation, Irradiance, Decrement Resistance Algorithm.
