dc.description.abstractMicroinverters are the latest advancements in the area of photovoltaic (PV) technology due to their compact design. They improve energy efficiency of PV systems due to the reduced effect of non-uniform operating conditions caused primarily by shading. However due to the low output voltage rating of PV modules, high output to input voltage gain ratio is required for microinverters integrated to the utility grid. Several of the existing techniques use transformers or coupled inductors to achieve high gain ratios. These often require precise design and increase the size and cost of the PV system. The Z-source network based high-gain converters can offer superior performance with reduced components, size and cost. However their operation in a microinverter for grid connected applications have not yet been studied. Therefore this paper presents a novel microinverter utilizing a high-gain Z-source boost converter followed by an H-bridge inverter. The principle of operation of the microinverter is detailed and the overall gain ratio is obtained. The operating region in the I-V characteristics of PV module is determined and the control strategies implemented are discussed in detail. Simulations are performed in MATLAB/Simulink platform to validate the performance of the proposed microinverter under possible operating condition. © 2020 IEEE.en_US
