For powering rural areas where constructing an electrical grid is not economical, the renewable energy including photovoltaic (PV) system is an interesting solution. PV panels need a power conditioning stage for both maximum power point tracking (MPPT) and energy conversion (dc to ac). In this paper, a multilevel inverter based PV/battery system is proposed for rural areas. The proposed system includes a multilevel inverter, a boost dc–dc MPPT converter, and a buck/boost dc–dc converter for battery charge/discharge. The incremental conductance method has been used for MPPT. The efficiency analysis of the proposed system is also presented. The proposed system has been simulated in the PSCAD/EMTDC environment to verify its operation and control.
