This study deals with a simulation of robust and reliable three phase grid power interface system for photo voltaic modules using genetics algorithm based optimization technique. A control system is designed to harvest maximum solar energy under varied weather conditions with the use of a genetics algorithm based SVPWM controlled Z source fed multilevel inverter. Using Z-source networks, the system can work within a wider range of PV array output voltages than for a conventional boost converter. This study describes an modified genetics algorithm that reduces the computational burden and optimum switching angles are determined to eliminate lower order harmonics and reduces total harmonics distortion. The simulation is done using MATLAB and the simulation results are presented. © Maxwell Scientific Organization, 2015.
