A NOVEL CASCADED H-BRIDGE MULTILEVEL INVERTER FOR SOLAR ENERGY INTEGRATION

Sonali raj, Ramesh kumar.

Abstract
The production of electricity from the solar energy system has led to decrement in environmental pollution, dependency on fossil fuels, and rescue from health-related problems. Despite having numerous benefits, its integration deteriorates the quality of power supply due to (i) Harmonics (ii) variability in voltage, which plays a vital role. This paper is attempting to explore techniques that can mitigate the harmonics and at the same time control voltage in the course of photovoltaic array integration to the load. Here Cascaded H- Bridge multilevel inverters of distinct levels have been designed, analyzed, and compared. Among them, the most favorable 23-level (having total harmonic distortion below 5% as per IEEE-519) of Cascaded H-bridge multilevel inverter is applied as an effective and efficient power electronic interfacing strategy for solar energy integration. The simulation is carried out for performance validation using MATLAB/ SIMULINK software. The subsequent work guidelines regarding the cost of the multilevel inverter as an interfacing device are proposed.

Key words: Cascaded H-Bridge multilevel inverter (CHBMLI), DC-DC converter, PV Array, Perturb, and Observe (P&O) algorithm, Total harmonic distortion (THD).
