Abstract—This paper presents the performance analysis of photovoltaic inverters with boost converter using MATLAB. Astring of photovoltaic panels are coupled to a single phase inverter using a boost converter. Boost converter can step up the voltage without using a transformer. With the selection of switching frequency the bridge circuit used in inverter model can be allowed to generate a single phase ac signal. Thus by selecting different switching frequencies the nature of ac signal can improved.
Index Terms—Boost converter, bridge inverter, photovoltaic panels, unipolar pwm switching.
