Abstract

Photovoltaic and battery systems often operate in small stand-alone or grid-connected applications, where the generator voltage is lower than the grid voltage. To boost the voltage up to the grid level a further element, either a DC/DC converter or 50 Hz transformer, is connected in series with a PWM inverter. To reduce the high cost of such low power systems, the costs of the power electronics should be minimized. In this paper, several new low-cost inverters with and without HF-transformers are presented. Simulation and experimental results of their operation and control for stand-alone as well for grid-connected applications are discussed
