Abstract: The utility of electric power plays a major role in economic development of a country. However, the demand for electrical energy goes on increasing every day. In order to meet out the demand for electricity, Renewable Energy Source (RES) has been identified as the alternate for electricity generation. Among the various RES, PV system has added consideration throughout the world due to its easy accessibility, boundless nature and of low maintenance cost. Since the voltage obtained from PV is not suitable for high power applications, a DC/DC step up converter is introduced. This converter should have reduced output voltage ripple which is an important factor that influences the overall performance of PV system. Hence, this work studied about the different topology of converter suitable for PV systems to have a better efficiency.
Keywords: Maximum Power Point Tracker (MPPT), Photovoltaic Cells (PV) and DC-DC Converter.
