A Fuzzy Logic Based Three phase Inverter with Single DC Source for Grid Connected PV System Employing Three Phase Transformer

venkatesan Mani, Rajeswari Ramachandran, Deverajan N


A fuzzy based three phase inverter with single DC source for grid connected photo voltaic (PV) system employing three phase transformer is presented in this paper. Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation (SVPWM) control scheme is effectively used to generate the appropriate switching sequences to the inverter switches. The intend of the fuzzy logic approach is to meet high quality output, fast response and high robustness. Finally Total Harmonics Distortion (THD) generated by the inverter is compared with conventional proportional Integral controls (PI). The results are verified with the help of MATLAB Simulink.
