In the past decade the utilization of renewable energy is ever increasing due to the scarcity of fossil fuels. The excessive power from renewable energy is considered mandatory in integration that improves the performance of the electric transmission system in terms of better reliability and eco green power generation. Extraction of abundant of power from the solar and interfacing to the electric grid through the power electronic components plays a significant role. However, the operation and control of the electric power system becomes very challenging during the integration. This paper uses single stage high performance maximum power point tracking (MPPT) for solar photovoltaic power generation. An efficient control design of current and voltage controllers is designed and a 3kW single phase grid connected PV inverter is proposed and validated using MATLAB/Simulink/PLECS. © 2014 IEEE.
