Abstract

The electricity power generated from photovoltaic (PV) array depends mainly on climate conditions. So, the PV solar grid connected inverters should equip with control system to meet fast response of solar irradiance change. This paper describes steady state performance of the PV grid-connected system at different solar irradiances. The proposed system model is built on MATLAB/Simulink, including the PV array with a modified perturb and observe (MP&O) tracker connected to DC-DC boost converter, the three-phase three level electronic power inverter that is connected to the utility grid (UG) through low pass filter and coupling transformer and synchronizing control system of PV inverter and UG. The proposed system is simulated under daily weather conditions to test its operating performance. The simulation results of the proposed system satisfy requirements grid performance with high power quality.
