Abstract :

Maximum power point tracking (MPPT) techniques are employed in photovoltaic (PV) systems to make full utilization of the PV array output power which depends on solar irradiation and ambient temperature. Among all the MPPT strategies, perturbation and observation (P&O) method is widely applied in the MPPT controllers due to their simplicity and easy implementation. Multilevel inverters became more popular in the power conversion systems for high power and power quality demanding applications. Among different topologies of MLIs, Cascaded H-Bridge MLIs are more suitable converters for PV applications since each PV panel can act as a separate DC source for each CHB module. This paper presents a simulation analysis 5-level CHBMLI for PV applications with the SPWM control technique using MATLAB/SIMULINK.
