Abstract

The main objective of this project is to develop and intelligent, compact power conditioning module that can be directly interfaced to PV converters and the utility grid. This inverter incorporates smart control electronics that will synchronize to the utility voltage. This involved developing software algorithms to tie all the hardware together and accomplish overall control. Power is successfully fed into the utility using both the photovoltaic arrays and power supply.
