Abstract:
The solar energy is one of the renewable energy source that is utilized to meet the electricity demand. The major DC to DC converters namely buck, boost, buck-boost, SEPIC, Zeta and Cuk converters are utilized in SPV power generation. Boost converters are used to boost up the voltages. Initially we gave the dc supply. To boost that low voltage to high voltage we are using boost converters. The SEPIC and CUK converters have input current continuous and helps in getting accurate maximum power point tracking of solar cell. The Zeta converter is capable of operating in both Boost and Buck converters. The Zeta converter is cascaded between the Solar Photovoltaic panel and Load. In this paper, we described about the operation of DC to DC converters that are used in solar photovoltaic (SPV) power generation.
