A Study of Flyback Microinverter Topologies for Photovoltaic Applications

Gayathri Vijayan, Raji Krishna



The microinverter system plays an imperative role in photovoltaic applications. Nowadays a central inverter system is substituted by a microinverter. The flyback inverter has the following advantages such as transformer separation, high voltage step-up ratio, low volume, high reliability, and provides high efficiency and relatively simple control. This paper proposes a collation of different flyback inverter topologies operating under various control schemes. A single phase current source inverter with hybrid mode is presented here and analogizes with single phase voltage source inverter with front end DC-DC transfiguration stage followed by a synchronized push pull system. The performance of the suggested model is simulated in MATLAB/Simulink environment.

Keywords: Total harmonic distortion (THD), Transparent Conductive Oxide (TCO), Maximum power point tracking (MPPT)
