Abstract

This paper presents a review of the state-of-the-art development of small-power grid-connected inverter topologies for practical implementation. Unique requirements for small distributed power generation systems include low cost, high efficiency and tolerance for an extremely wide range of input voltage variations. Selection guide lines are given based on application requirements and cost considerations. Special attentions are focused on the analysis of switch utilization factor in comparing competitive inverter topologies.
