Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Details of a converter and control system used in a photovoltaic AC module is presented. The sizing of the DC link capacitor, the DC:DC converter design and the maximum power point algorithm are discussed. An overview of system integration including the converter and its control is given. Throughout, the choices of system components are supported with analysis and simulation, as well as experimental tests using a solar emulator test system.
