Abstract – A hybrid pulse width modulated threephase quasiZ source inverter (qZSI) based gridtie Photovoltaic (PV) power system is proposed. The hybrid pulse width modulation (HPWM) conducts PWM when the required ac output voltage is lesser than the dc source voltage, otherwise it performs pulseamplitude modulation (PAM) for the threephase qZSI. The lowfrequency ripple voltage of dc link is utilized, resulting in reductions of quasiZsource inductance and capacitance, as well as power devices switching actions. Control strategy of the proposed system is further presented to track the maximum power points of the PV panel and to inject the extracted PV power into grid. A gridtie current controller, combining with the plugin repetitive control and proportionalresonant regulator, is employed to achieve strong harmonic suppression, fast convergence, and zero tacking error.
I.INTRODUCTION
Fast increase of energy demands is motivating the development of gridconnected photovoltaic (PV) power systems. The quasiZsource inverter (qZSI) has attracted interests in PV applications because of singlestage power conversion, no dead time between switches of one bridge leg, and ability of handling wide dc voltage variations. Moreover, the singlephase qZSI can operate as a module to form cascaded inverter systems or as independent inverter systems. However, the secondorder harmonic (2) pulsating power appears in the singlephase qZSI power modules dc link and transfers to qZS capacitors and qZS inductors, no exception to PV panels, which introduces loworder harmonics into the ac output and may shorten the lifetime of PV panels. To limit the 2 voltages and currents within tolerant ranges, large qZS capacitance and inductance are required when using the traditional carrier pulsewidth modulation (PWM) of the single phase qZSI. Bulky qZS capacitors and inductors will not only increase volume and cost, but also degrade system efficiency and reliability. A hybrid pulsewidth modulation (HPWM) for three phase qZSI combines the PWM and pulseamplitude modulation (PAM). The former works in the same way to the traditional voltage source inverter without shoot through states, when the qZSIs output ac voltage is lower than the input dc voltage; the latter produces 2 dclink voltage by changing shootthrough duty cycle so that only one switch of each bridge leg conducts switching. Thus, the PWM switches at low dclink voltage and the switching action is greatly reduced in PAM, so that low loss. Moreover, it results in low qZS impendence, so that high power density. It comes out with (M) modulation index & shoot through duty cycle D are independent in the
hybrid modulated single phase qZSI, without the limitation of M+D<1 as seen in PWM controlled qZSI; whereas, the 2 dc link peak voltage, MPPT of PV panels, and power injection into grid should be taken care only through the modulation index. How to achieve these? Up to date, no literature has discussed such control of the qZSbased PV power system. This paper will answer the question. For the conventional singlephase gridtie PWM converter, several methods have been investigated to improve controller's harmonic suppressing capability. The proportionalresonant (PR) control achieves zero tracking error for sinusoidal signals but presents infinite gain at only the fundamental frequency. The multiPR control was proposed to eliminate harmonic components on multiples of the fundamental frequency, with the cost of high computation burden. The internal model principle (IMP) based repetitive controller (RC) presents ability to suppress harmonics on multiple frequencies, and the combination of proportionalintegral (PI) or PR control is performed to improve its convergence response. This paper is to propose a hybrid pulsewidth modulated singlephase qZSPV power system, including an effective gridtie control strategy.
CONVENTIONAL METHOD
The fig 1shows that circuit diagram for conventional method. This conventional structure must be oversized to cope with the wide PV voltage variation derived from changes of irradiation and temperature
Fig 1 Circuit diagram for conventional method
The dualstage inverter topology applies a boost DCDC converter to minimize the required KVA rating of the inverter and boost the widerange input voltage to a constant desired output value. Yet, the cost is increased and the efficienc y is decreased by the switch in the DCDC converter. Many number
of ESS system which will act as bidirectional dc / dc device to manage the batteries that makes the system intricate increase its price, and decreases its trustworthiness
PROPOSED METHOD
The fig 2 shows that circuit diagram for proposed method. This proposed system, as QZS network instead of DC DC converter. It will be drawn a dc constant current and voltage
Fig. 2 Circuit diagram for proposed method
Normally the Zsource inverter (ZSI) had been used to achieve the voltage boost/buck character in a single power conversion stage, this type of converter can handle the PV dc voltage variations over a wide range without overrating the inverter. The part count and system price are decreased, with improved trustworthiness owing to the allowed shootthrough state. Recently anticipated quasiZsource inverters (qZSI) have some new appealing merits which is appropriate for application in PV systems follows

The qZSI draws a constant current from the PV panel, and thus, there is no need for extra filtering capacitors

The qZSI features lower component (capacitor) ratings

The qZSI reduces switching ripples

ENERGY CONVERSION EFFICIENCY
=Pm/E*A —(1)
The eqn (1) expressed as, Energy conversion efficiency is the percentage of power transformed from absorbed light to electrical energy. while the solar cell is linked to an electrical circuit. This term is calculated using the ratio of maximum power Pm divided by input light irradiance E in W/m2 under standard test conditions (STC) and A is area of the solar cell.
MAXIMUM POWER
The load that the cell will deliver most power at the extent of irradiation. The equation (2) states Pm is highest power, Vm is highest voltage, and Im is the highest current
Pm = Vm*Im –(2)
SOLAR MODULE AND ARRAY MODEL
Since a typical PV cell produces less than 2W at 0.5V approximately, the cells must be connected in seriesparallel configuration on a module to produce enough high power. A PV array is a group of several PV modules which are electrically connected in series and parallel circuits to generate the required current and voltage. The equivalent circuit for the solar module arranged in Np parallel ad Ns series. The terminal equation for the current and voltage
The mathematical eqn (3) of generalized model can be described as, we get
I=Npph NpIs[{(q(V/Ns)+(Rs/Np))/kTcA}1] —(3)
The equivalent circuit is described on the following eqn (4) is = Npph NpIs [{(q(V/NSkTcA)}1] —(4)
Where, Ns – is series number of cells for a PV array. Np is parallel number of cells for a PV array.

MODES OF OPERATION
Pulse width modulation (PWM) strategies are necessary to correctly control the qZSI. The Hybrid PWM (HPWM)based techniques of qZSI will be alienated into uncomplicated boost control, max and max constant boost control.They are simple to implement, but have defects of high switching frequency and additional switching operations, resulting in the incremental losses
This mode will make the inverter short circuit via any one phase leg, combinations of any two phase legs, and all three phase legs which are referred to as the shootthrough state. During this time interval, the circuit eqns are presented as shown in fig 4

The output from qZSI is as shown in fig 7. The output is measured and the 3 phase supply is not directly coupled through the grid, due to the energy disparity is carried from the PV power. This may be optimized throughout the shoot through state. Now the PV power may be controlled by the duty cycle. The inverter output is controlled by modulation index for stable, even and to augment the massive power.
