Abstract

In renewable energy sources, the objective is maximum extraction and utilization of the available power. In this paper a hybrid flyback converter with multi ports-an AC Grid, a PV and a DC LED ports - is proposed to be used as an LED driver. The converter has the capability to achieve two objectives: first to maintain a continuous supply to the LED lighting system either from the Photovoltaic (PV) panel or the grid, and second to achieve maximum utilization of the solar PV panel by tracking the maximum power point and exporting surplus power to the grid, or getting the power deficit from the grid. The topology of the converter, operating principle, modes of operation and control structure are presented in this work. The concept of the hybrid flyback converter is verified using Matlab Simulink®. An experimental prototype is developed and tested for a 120-watt system, with 35 VDC solar panels, 120 Vrms 60 Hz grid and 24 VDC LED lights.
