	%X We present a simulation and realization of a battery
charge regulator (BCR) in microsatellite earth observation. The tests
were performed on battery pack 12volt, capacity 24Ah and the solar array open circuit voltage of 100 volt and optimum power of about
250 watt. The battery charge is made by solar module. The principle is to adapt the output voltage of the solar module to the battery by
using the technique of pulse width modulation (PWM). Among the different techniques of charge battery, we opted for the technique of
the controller ON/OFF is a standard technique and simple, it-s easy to
be board executed validation will be made by simulation "Proteus Isis
Professional software ". The circuit and the program of this prototype
are based on the PIC16F877 microcontroller, a serial interface connecting a PC is also realized, to view and save data and graphics
in real time, for visualization of data and graphs we develop an interface tool “visual basic.net (VB)--.
