The fast depleting rate of fossil fuels necessitates the need for alternate renewable energy sources to generate electricity. Electricity plays a pivotal role in the country's economic development and has a pre-eminent role to play. One way of converting the incident sunlight into electricity is by using PV cells. This proposed paper focuses on using the power generated from PV cells for supplying single phase AC loads. A boost converter with 0.5 duty cycle was fabricated and tested. The results obtained from hardware and software simulation is shown to have better efficiency. This concept is simulated using PLECS software. The boost converter fabricated has specifications of 24-48V conversion and power rating of 96W. The efficiency was found to be 93%. © 2019 IEEE.
