Abstract

This chapter presents a comprehensive overview of grid-connected PV systems, including power curves, grid-connected configurations, different converter topologies (both single-and three-phase), control schemes, MPPT, and anti-islanding detection methods. The focus of the chapter has been on the mainstream solutions available in the PV industry, in order to establish the current state-of-the-art in PV converter technology. Some examples of commercial PV converters have been included for this purpose. In addition, some recently introduced concepts on multilevel converter-based PV systems for large-scale PV plants have been discussed, along with trends, challenges, and possible future scenarios of PV converter technology.
