Seminar Abstract

Solar Photovoltaics (PV) is one of the fastest growing renewable energy resources, which is being integrated into distribution systems worldwide due to its easy installation and cost competitiveness. Inverters play an important role in extracting, processing and feeding the power to the grid. Over the last decade, various interesting topologies and control methods have led to Improvements in its performance. With increasing penetration of solar PV in distribution system, new challenges such as reliability, extraction efficiency, reactive power etc. are gaining importance.

This seminar would focus on the recent advancements in solar PV string inverters. Topics related to circuit topologies such as leakage currents, conversion efficiency and power decoupling would be discussed. Reliability and health monitoring of various components of Inverter would be introduced as potential areas for future research. The solutions to some of these problems, found at Power Electronics for Renewable Integration (PERI) Lab, at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, India, would be presented. Joint projects carried out with the participation of various Industries in this area, would also be discussed.
