Abstract

This paper report presents a review of the state-of-the-art development of single-phase photovoltaic inverters. We focus on technologies for the performance improvement and cost reduction techniques developed for the design of small power lie tie PV inverters. Some practical design considerations are given for a DSP-controlled PV inverter. An integration of the-state-of-art PV inverter control techniques has been developed for a single-chip DSPcontrolled grid-connected PV inverter with a rating of 2kW. Experimental results of the designed inverter show a high energy-efficiency of 94 % and a low distortion on the line current with a current THD of 2.4% at rated power.
