Power Exchange by Using Micro-grid Inverter with High-Voltage Gain for Photovoltaic Applications

M. R. Banaei and E. Salary
Abstract—In this paper, power exchange in a clean energy system using multi-stage converter based on combination of novel dc/dc converter and the nine-switch inverter is presented. Power exchange between grid and renewable energies is one advantage of smart grid. The nine-switch converter consists of a one capacitor link and nine semiconductor switches and it has two output ports. The proposed dc/dc converter has high gain. The presented systems connect photovoltaic energy sources to load and grid. In proposed structure photovoltaic source inject energy to load and grid. If the photovoltaic source can’t feed the load, the grid can feed load through nine-switch converter. The simulation results by MATLAB/SIMULINK show ability of presented systems in power generation.

Index Terms—Photovoltaic, dc/dc converter, nine-switch converter, power exchange.
