This paper presents a new technology based solar PV charge controller which contains series, shunt charge controller. The lead acid battery is been chosen for charging and discharging of series, shunt charge controller due to its features. Authors used MOSFET's for the switching purpose and it will reduce the switching losses. The proposed charge controller has been developed using MATLAB and the charging and discharging process of developed charge controller has been verified. Further, the developed charge controller has been maintained within the SOC limits by considering the efficiency of the battery maintained good, hence forth the life time of battery can be increased up to a larger extent. In addition, the analysis on various charge controller has been discussed and based on this it can be proved that; the performance of the proposed charge controller is improved and it requires less number of switches so the cost of the system also reduces. It is most suitable for optimize the energy crises in the rural areas to an affordable level. © 2017 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
