Simulation and Hardware Implementation of MPPT Based Single Phase Photovoltaic Inverter Using TMS320C28027 Control

Abstract—to harness the solar energy, various energy conversion technologies are required. Photovoltaic (PV) panels, or commonly known as solar panels, are devices used to convert sunlight into electricity. The acronym PV stands for photo (light) and voltaic (electricity), whereby sunlight photons free electrons from the atoms of the panels and creates a voltage difference. Since the PV panels convert sunlight into electricity in the form of direct current (dc), while most electrical devices for residential applications require alternating current (ac), dc-ac power conversion is needed. This can be realized by power converter known as inverter. In solar energy systems, PV inverter is the power converter used specifically to convert the dc power obtained from PV panels into ac power. From the economic point of view, although the cost of PV power is relatively high as compared to other renewable energy sources such as wind and biomass, it has decreased from more than $50/W in the early 1980s to about $5/W today. Besides, the PV panels can be designed as part of the roof structure, replacing the conventional ceramic or concrete-based roof tiles. In view of these advantages, PV is envisaged as a viable economics proposition of the future. As the solar energy for residential application is gaining considerable interest, there have been numerous PV inverter topologies proposed in the literature. PV grid connected and stand alone systems are becoming more and more popular now a days. With proper tracking system an efficient inverter system can be developed for single phase as well as three phase. This research paper is basically based on the approach that by considering a conventional tracking system a single phase inverter circuit is implemented whose switching is done by using DSP TMS320C28027.

Index Terms—Photovoltaic panels, boost converter, bridge inverter, unipolar pwm switching, TMS320C28027.
