  Buck-Boost Interleaved Inverter for Grid Connected Photovoltaic System Omar Abdel-Rahim,  IEEE Student Member  , Mohamed Orabi,  IEEE Senior Member   and Mahrous E. Ahmed,  IEEE Member    APEARC, South Valley University, Aswan City 81542, Egypt   Abstract   —in this paper, a single stage buck-boost inverter is proposed for grid connected PV system with a very high voltage gain. The proposed inverter not only  boosts DC output voltage of the PV module but also converts it into AC voltage which is required for grid connection. Discontinuous conduction mode (DCM) is employed to achieve unity power factor with the grid voltage and a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) control. The proposed topology has several desirable features such as high gain, low cost, compact size and simple control. Only two switches operate at high switching frequency and so switching losses are minimized. Simulation and experimental results are given to prove the proposed system.  Keywords —   Single Stage, Buck-Boost Inverter, Low-Cost, Grid-Connected, PV system, Simple-Control, DCM, MPPT. I.   I  NTRODUCTION  Renewable energy has become an important source of energy; Photovoltaic system (PV) is an example of renewable energy. PV modules convert sunlight into electrical power, so they provide an important source of energy. PV modules can't be connected to the grid directly, but this could be done by using power conditioning system, that is for example H-bridge inverter, to convert dc output power of PV modules into ac output  power. Output voltage of PV modules is not very high, so we may be in need to connect more than one module in series to get the required dc voltage. H-Bridge Inverter, shown in Fig.1, is a buck inverter that has the requirement of input voltage greater than output voltage. In case of input voltage is smaller than output voltage, a boost converter is used before the inverter stage to provide the required voltage for the inverter as shown in Fig. 2. Inverters may be classified as single stage or two stages according to how is the input voltage will be  boosted. In the two stage inverters, the first stage is boost converters which boost input voltage to become greater than output voltage and the second stage is a buck converter used to convert dc input voltage into an ac output voltage. In the single stage inverters, the inverter does two functions boosting the input voltage and converting DC power into AC power. Single stage inverters have some advantages over two stage inverters such as low cost and compact size but suffer from low voltage gain and low efficiency compared to two stage inverters. In [1], the proposed topology suffers from low gain and complex control. Flyback inverter proposed in [2] suffers from high stress on switches and also the efficiency decreases as the turns ratio increases. A single stage inverter which was proposed in [3] has the following advantages such as simple, compact, low cost and simple control, but suffers from low voltage gain and low efficiency. In [4], the proposed inverter could buck or  boost input voltage, but suffer from complex control and the gain is not very high. In this paper a single stage inverter is proposed it has a very high gain, low switches stresses and simple control, as it will be explained in the next section. Figure 3 shows the schematic of the proposed inverter. The proposed inverter consists of two buck boost converters, one converter operates during positive half cycle and the other operates during the negative half cycle. Figure 1: Traditional voltage source inverter.  The proposed system is suitable for AC module technology, where each PV module can be attached to the grid directly. This application is good as electrical characteristics of the PV module are greatly affected by shading condition. Shadow causes the output power of the PV module to be reduced. The proposed inverter helps in solving this problem by reducing number of connected modules per inverter. A maximum power point tracking control is applied for better utilization of the PV module. As the module power is low and to simplify the control for unity power factor DCM mode is applied.

Figure 6: diode D4 current. switched inductor buck boost uck boost converter  . age inverter. 65  As switches SW2 and SW3 are modulated using sine wave this cause a large oscillation in the PV output voltage, this large oscillation make MPPT controller doesn't work well so that a large capacitor is used in the input, The value of the switched inductors is very small as the converter operates in the DCM mode and output filter is very small due to sine modulation of the converter switches SW2 and SW3. Figure 11 shows simulation results of the grid current which is in phase with a grid voltage. Unity power factor is achieved without any feedback from grid current this is due to the converter operating in DCM mode. Figure 12 shows output power of the PV module, the figure indicates that the MPPT control is operating well and able to extract maximum power from PV modules. Figure 13 shows one inductor current as shown each conductor carry current for only one half cycle, the current is discontinuous and the ripple is high due to DCM operation.

Figure 14 (b) and Fig. 15 (b) show that switches SW4 and SW1 operate at grid fundamental frequency, while Fig. 14 (a) and Fig. 15 (a) show that Switches SW3 and SW2 operate at high switching frequency for only one half cycles. Inverter Efficiency was found 87% at full load. This is a good efficiency for DCM operation with such high voltage gain. Figure 10: Flowchart of the MPPT control.
