Three Phase Grid-Connected Photovoltaic System using Three Level H-bridge Inverter under Partial Shading

III. PERTURB AND OBSERVE ALGORITHM MPPT algorithms are necessary in PV applications because the MPP of a solar panel varies with the irradiation and temperature, so the use of MPPT algorithms is required in order to obtain the maximum power from a solar array. There are many MPPT techniques. The most commonly used MPPT algorithm is P&O method. This algorithm uses simple feedback arrangement and little measured parameters. In this approach, the module voltage is periodically given a perturbation and the corresponding output power is compared with that at the previous perturbing cycle [7]. In this algorithm a slight perturbation is introduce to the system. This perturbation causes the power of the solar module various. If the power increases due to the perturbation then the perturbation is continued in the same direction. After the peak power is reached the power at the MPP is zero and next instant decreases and hence after that the perturbation reverses as shown in Fig. 4(a) and 4(b).

Simulation of Three Phase Cascade H-Bridge Multilevel Inverter with Grid Connected System Modeling of Switching and Conduction Losses

Simulation of Three Phase Cascade H-Bridge Multilevel Inverter with Grid Connected System Modeling of Switching and Conduction Losses

To control the output of voltage waveform in multilevel inverters, different modulation techniques have been applied. These control techniques are classified mainly based on the switching frequency into low or high switching techniques. Space Vector Control (SVC) and Selective Harmonic Elimination (SHE) are low switching techniques in which the active power switch is commutated only one or two times within one cycle. On the other hand, various PWM are used for high switching techniques in which the power switch is switched many times within a cycle [1]. In this analysis, SHE has been proposed for controlling the inverter as this technique has lower switching losses and less EMI because of its low switching [4]. In addition, it can eliminate the dominant low order harmonic and hence minimize the size of the required filter at the inverter output.

Three-phase Transformerless Grid connected  PV Inverter

Three-phase Transformerless Grid connected PV Inverter

Abstract: PV systems are now more affordable due to government incentives, advancement of power electronics and semiconductor technology and cost reduction in PV modules. In the past, various transformers less PV inverter topologies have been introduced, with leakage current minimized by the means of galvanic isolation and common-mode voltage (CMV) clamping. Leakage current minimization is one of the most important considerations in transformer less photovoltaic (PV) inverters. The galvanic isolation can be achieved via dc-decoupling or ac-decoupling, for isolation on the dc- or ac-side of the inverter, respectively. It has been shown that the latter provides lower losses due to the reduced switch count in conduction path. Common- mode voltage (CMV) appears in Three-phase due to working principles of the pulse width modulation (PWM) inverters. This voltage is the main source of many unwanted problems systems. In this Project, several recently proposed transformer less PV inverters with different galvanic isolation methods and CMV clamping technique are analyzed and compared. A simple modified H-bridge zero-voltage state rectifier is also proposed, to combine the benefits of the low-loss ac-decoupling method and the complete leakage current elimination of the CMV clamping method. The performances of different topologies, in terms of CMV, leakage current, total harmonic distortion, losses and efficiencies are compared. A safety issue is the main concern for the transformer less PV systems due to high leakage current. Without galvanic isolation, a direct path can be formed for the leakage currentto flow from the PV to the grid The proposed concept can be implemented to PV inverter with Three-phase by using MATLAB/SIMULATION software.

Implementation of Grid Connected Solar System Using Cascaded Eleven Level H-Bridge Multi-Level Inverter

As the conventional energy sources are rapidly depleting and the demand of the electricity is increasing day by day as the world is moving towards advancement, this leads to develop alternatives for fulfilling the energy requirement. Hence the most promising solution is the use of renewable energy sources [1]. Most reliable type of the renewable energy i.e. Solar Energy is utilized for powering utility in the proposed work of this thesis. Using Solar Photovoltaic Array as the primary source, a model is developed and simulated in the MATLAB-Simulink, extracting the solar energy in the form of electrical energy. Output of the array is interfaced to the conventional dc-ac converter to get the AC voltage [2]. For feeding the single phase utilities, a two level voltage source inverter is interfaced at the output terminals of the PV array to get the pure sinusoidal output voltage, but the low Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) generated is not within the standard limits. To reduce THD filter is used with two level voltage source inverter. On the other hand multilevel is first choice because it gives low THD AC output voltage without the use of filter [3].Many efforts has done to improve the performance of the system with minimum losses, distortion and as possible as the maximum efficiency by using different topologies of multilevel inverter and with different levels. In this paper a MFGT inverter is designed the system is integrated to grid and to mitigate various power quality issues like voltage regulation, harmonic reduction, real and reactive power management etc. has been discussed [4,5].

Three Phase Grid Connected Photovoltaic System with Maximum Power Point Tracking

ABSTRACT: This paper proposes a three phase grid connected photovoltaic system in which maximum power point of PV array is traced using perturb and observe algorithm. Power converter consists of a switch mode DC-DC boost converter and a neutral point clamped 3-level inverter. An overview of the dq transformation and sinusoidal PWM technique are presented for the inverter control system along with grid synchronization condition. The boost DC converter is controlled using an open loop maximum power point tracking technique in order to achieve fast control response to transients and changes in weather conditions. A DC link capacitor is used after the DC converter. The capacitor’s voltage is regulated using a DC link controller that balances input and output powers of the capacitor. The performance of the system is simulated via MATLAB SIMULINK. Furthermore, voltage source inverter is controlled in the rotating dq frame to inject a controllable three phase AC current into the grid. To achieve unity power factor operation, current is injected in phase with the grid voltage. A phase locked loop (PLL) is used to lock on the grid frequency and provide a stable reference synchronization signal for the inverter control system, which works to minimize the error between the actual injected current and the reference current obtained from the DC link controller.

Three Phase Grid Connected Photovoltaic systems Using Effective Linear Stabilization System with fuzzy logic controller

Three Phase Grid Connected Photovoltaic systems Using Effective Linear Stabilization System with fuzzy logic controller

The utilization of grid-connected solar systems is increasingly being pursued as a supplement and an alternative to the conventional fossil fuel generation in order to meet increasing energy demands and to limit the pollution of the environment. The major concerns of integrating PV into the grid are stochastic behaviours of solar irradiations and interfacing of inverters with the grid. Because of high initial investment, changes in solar irradiation, and reduced life-time of PV systems, as compared with the traditional energy sources, it is beneficial to extract maximum power from PV systems. Maximum power point tracking (MPPT) techniques are widely used to extract maximum power from the PV system that is delivered to the grid through the inverter. Interconnections among PV modules within a shaded PV field can affect the extraction of maximum power. A study of all possible shading scenarios and interconnection schemes for a given PV field, to maximize the output power of PV array, is proposed in previous methodology. Inverters interfacing PV modules with the grid perform two major tasks—one is to ensure that PV modules are operated at maximum power point (MPP), and the other is to inject a sinusoidal current into the grid. In order to evaluate these tasks effectively, we need one efficient control schemes are essential .In a grid-connected PV system, control objectives are met by a strategy using a pulse width modulation (PWM) scheme.

TRANSFORMERLESS PV grid-connected inverters have already found widespread application in practice [1]. The higher conversion efficiency and lower leakage current are two major pushing forces in the development of the transformer-less grid-connected inverter. In order to improve the efficiency of the single-phase transformer less grid-connected inverters, two ways are developed: one is constructing multilevel circuit structures (mainly focusing on five-level topologies and the other is using new semiconductor devices, such as SiC-type or GaN-type devices. The single-phase transformer less multilevel grid- connected inverter has some merits, such as lower voltage stress for power device, smaller filter size and losses, which is beneficial to gain the efficiency [2-3]. However, the control strategy is sophisticated given the problem of voltage unbalance for the power devices and the degraded reliability of the inverter. The wide band gap (WBG) semiconductor devices will promote the development of power electronics and improve on the conversion efficiency essentially. However, at present, the fabricating technique of the new materials stays on immature still, and the rate of finished products is low. Therefore, the cost of the inverter with WBG devices would be increased significantly, which is reverse with the target of ―dollar per watt‖ initial installation cost for PV generation system.

Design and Implementation of Transformerless Mosfet Inverter for a Grid Connected Single Phase Photovoltaic System

HERIC: Topology of inverter with MOSFET switches highly proficient and dependable inverter in which it has two switches on Alternative Current part in full bridge for the purpose of decoupling photovoltaic section from grid for the time of freewheeling period [1]. There will be a common mode voltage during this period so clamping should be done at input voltage side of Direct Current midpoint [5]. HB-ZVR: H bridge zero voltage rectifier replaced HERIC topology. The switches are made up of MOSFET. Two freewheeling switches are replaced in this topology with one bidirectional switch and four diodes. Another diode D5 is added for elimination of leakage current. Only the one directional clamping is done in this topology when (VAN – VBN) is upper than DC link midpoint voltage. There is also a common mode voltage oscillation occurs in reverse condition but it is comparatively less than HERIC. Conduction losses are less in both the topologies as the grid current flows from beginning to end the switches during complete grid period H5: Switches are made by the combination of MOSFET and IGBT. An additional switch added on DC part of the full bride inverter which is MOSFET. In the period of half cycle of the positive, freewheeling current flows all the way through body diode of switch S3 and switch S1. During the half cycle of negative freewheeling current flows from beginning to end switch body diode of switch S1and S3. In the freewheeling of current no implemented with MOSFET because it has low reverse recovery problem in its body diode. Higher conduction losses are there since output current flows from end to end three switches in the active approach of full grid cycle. Common mode fluctuation is also seen due to no clamping by the side of the mid-point of DC link side. oH5: This topology made up of switches with the combination of MOSFET and IGBT. An additional switch S6 is supplementary for the clamping purpose which is IGBT [5]. Since using IGBT the dead time to be added between S5 and S6 switches to stay away from input split capacitor short circuit. Common mode fluctuation is obtained during dead time. High conduction losses are seen since grid current flows in the course of switches in active mode. H6: The topology made up of IGBT switches with two diodes on Direct Current side of full bridge inverter. Common mode voltage fluctuation is better than the other topologies as there is bidirectional clamping branch. Diode D1 or D2 conduct (VAN – VBN) is higher or lower than the link voltage of half of the DC. Higher conduction losses will be obtained when flow of grid current through four switches [3]. 2.

A Nine Level Modular cascaded H-Bridge Multilevel PV Inverter for Grid Connected Applications

A Nine Level Modular cascaded H-Bridge Multilevel PV Inverter for Grid Connected Applications

Modular cascaded H-bridge multilevel inverters for single and three-phase grid-connected PV systems are shown in Fig.1. Each phase consists of n H-bridge converters connected in series, and the dc link of each H-bridge can be fed by a PV panel or a short string of PV panels. The cascaded multilevel inverter is connected to the grid through L filters, which are used to reduce the switching harmonics in the current. By different combinations of the four switches in each H-bridge module, three output voltage levels can be generated: −vdc, 0, or +vdc. A cascaded multilevel inverter with n input sources will provide 2n + 1 levels to synthesize the AC output waveform. This (2n + 1)-level voltage waveform enables the reduction of harmonics in the synthesized current, reducing the size of the needed output filters. Multilevel inverters also have other advantages such as reduced voltage stresses on the semiconductor switches and having higher efficiency when compared to other converter topologies.

Implementation Of Maximum Power Point Tracking With A Boost Converter And A Three Level 3-Phase Inverter Connected To The Grid

Implementation Of Maximum Power Point Tracking With A Boost Converter And A Three Level 3-Phase Inverter Connected To The Grid

For solar to be a competitive energy source it is extremely important to extract the maximum power from each panel and lower the cost per kilowatt. It turns out that this is not as simple as just hooking a panel to a battery or grid; there are many variables that affect the performance of a panel, such as shade, shadows, and ambient temperature—thus the need for MPPT algorithms. Solar cells, like other silicon diodes, have an exponential transfer function from voltage to current. A small change in voltage results in a large change in current. Two important factors that have to be taken into account are the irradiation and the temperature. In general, I-V curve for a PV array is non – linear so a specific point on the curve Abstract: The power output of the solar array is dependent of the irradiance, temperature and internal properties of the materials used to make solar cells. These factors contribute in the position of the Maximum power point. Changes in atmospheric conditions affect directly the output of the solar panel. Therefore, there is a need to track the Maximum power point to ensure that the system delivers the maximum power and the losses are reduced at any given time despite the change in temperature and irradiation throughout a day. The maximum power point tracking(MPPT) of the PV output for all sunshine conditions is a key to keep the output power per unit cost low for successful PV applications. Several techniques have been proposed for maximum power point tracking. The most commonly used technique for MPPT is the perturb and observe technique. MATLAB was used to simulate the Perturb and observe. The main aim will be to track the maximum power point of the photovoltaic module so that the maximum possible power can be extracted from the photovoltaic. The algorithms utilized for MPPT are generalized algorithms and are easy to model or used as a code. The algorithms are written in m files of MATLAB and utilized in simulation where the values of the irradiance and temperature were chosen based on the average values in Benue State. The solar cell is modeled using SIM Power Systems blocks.

Modeling of photovoltaic grid connected generation system based on three level NPC converter

Abstract—Renewable energy sources have been increasing and developing continuously in the last years, due to advantages over conventional generation sources. Photovoltaic (PV) systems gen- erate electricity from sunlight without creating any air or water pollution and in a clean, quiet and reliable way. The efficiency and performance of PV systems are still under development. As a consequence, the control structures of the PV system grid- connected are a fundamental part for its proper functioning. In this paper, a grid connected photovoltaic system based on a three-phase three-level neutral point clamped (NPC) inverter is presented. The proposed system describes in detail each stage along with the suited controllers, which operate in a proper and efficient way. In addition, the Perturbation and Observation (P&O) algorithm to get the maximum power point tracking (MPPT) of the PV system under different irradiation conditions, is proposed. In order to maximize the PV system power, a three- phase three-level NPC converter is used to achieve higher power levels, lower voltage stress on devices, lower switching frequency and reduce harmonic content. In addition, d-q reference frames are used to decouple the active and reactive power controllers. Simulations to validate the proposed procedures of the complete system are presented.

The PWM strategy alone is not sufficient to maintain a low ground leakage current, other components were added as described in Section IV. The proposed PWM strategy stretches the efficiency by using the two legs where PWM frequency switching does not occur. Insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) with fast antiparallel diodes are required in the legs where high-frequency hard-switching commutations occur. In Grid-connected operation, one full-bridge leg is directly connected to the grid neutral wire, whereas the phase wire is connected to the converter through an LC filter.
