Abstract

The results presented in this paper have been acquired through simulation of a grid-connected photovoltaic system (GCPV) to a specific section of Alsabyia generation station part of Kuwait national grid with efficient maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithm incorporated into a DC-DC boost converter. The simulations were performed using Power Simulation Software (PSIM). The analytical model of a photovoltaic (PV) module has been combined with a 'perturb and observe' (P&O) method so that MPP is achieved with the external temperature and solar radiation (SR) also considered. A DC-AC inverter is used to track the output voltage of the converter and interface the PV array with the grid. The results show that the model not only achieves the MPP function but also improves the output of the inverter by reducing the ripples in the sine waveforms.
