  • Power Electronics for Photovoltaic Power Systems

    The world energy demand has been increasing in a rapid manner with the increase of population and rising standard of living. The world population has nearly doubled in the last 40 years from 3.7 billion people to the present 7 billion people. It is anticipated that world population will grow towards 8 billion around 2030. Furthermore, the conventional fossil fuel supplies become unsustainable as the energy demand in emerging big economies such as China and India would rise tremendously where the China will increase its energy demand by 75% and India by 100% in the next 25 years. With dwindling natural resources, many countries throughout the world have increasingly invested in renewable resources such as photovoltaics (PV) and wind. The world has seen immense growth in global photovoltaic power generation over the last few decades. For example, in Australia, renewable resources represented nearly 15% of total power generation in 2013. Among renewable resources, solar and wind account for 38% of generation. In near future, energy in the domestic and industrial sector will become ""ubiquitous"" where consumers would have multiple sources to get their energy. Another such prediction is that co- location of solar and electrical storage will see a rapid growth in global domestic and industrial sectors; conventional power companies, which dominate the electricity market, will face increasing challenges in maintaining their incumbent business models. The efficiency, reliability and cost-effectiveness of the power converters used to interface PV panels to the mains grid and other types of off-grid loads are of major concern in the process of system design. This book describes state-of-the-art power electronic converter topologies used in various PV power conversion schemes. This book aims to provide a reader with a wide variety of topologies applied in different circumstances so that the reader would be able to make an educated choice for a given application.

  • Photovoltaic Research

    This chapter deals with research and development on hardware components of photovoltaic (PV) installations. It considers PV technology and the research activities devoted to improving its performance. The chapter focuses on the ways of increasing the efficiency of crystalline solar cells. Major PV companies, even those whose commercial business was in crystalline silicon, had substantial thin film research programs. Solar cells are much more tolerant and could successfully be made on many of these off‐grade wafers; so PV cell producers bought the semiconductor industry's rejects. Organic solar cells are often offered in flexible plastic packages. Flexible modules continue to feature in the market today, but mainly in minority consumer applications. The direction of travel suggests that heterojunctions and multijunctions are likely to form an increasingly important part of the sector as demand for more efficient solar cells develops.

  • PV Array Modeling at Cell Level under Non‐homogeneous Conditions

    When the photovoltaic (PV) string is simulated at a module level, it is assumed that the irradiation level received by all the cells in the module is the same, and also that those cells are perfectly equal in terms of parameters. Unfortunately, PV string modeling level does not allow the reverse behavior of the cells to be examined, it is perhaps the best compromise between accuracy and computation speed, but it does not account for the hot‐spot phenomena that the cells might be subject to in some operating conditions. The cell model must therefore be improved so that it takes into account cell behavior at negative voltage values. The subcell model should be useful for lowering the granularity level of the representation, thus allowing it to describe if a single cell is affected by a partial shadowing or not. The objective is to achieve a simulation of such operating conditions by an equivalent circuit model.

  • Photovoltaic Devices

    The history and advancement of solar cell device technology has been remarkable due to the tremendous advances in solar energy conversion efficiency and the breadth of materials used in photovoltaics. Never has the timing been more important than now for this clean and abundant energy source to become a major, if not dominant component of humankind's energy resource. This chapter provides an historical review from the early days of photovoltaic research and development to the present day in which efficiencies exceeding 40% have been widely demonstrated, silicon photovoltaics have produced performance close to theoretical boundaries for that material system, polycrystalline thin films on inexpensive substrates are en route to economic viability, and nanostructure-enabled physics is being adapted for use in new generations of photovoltaic technologies.

  • Economics of Solar Generation

    This chapter discusses the comparative economics for off‐grid and grid‐linked applications. It then looks at the factors that drive solar system costs, and shows how prices developed after the heady $100+/W level inherited from the space industry. The measure used in the chapter, dollars per watt, is obtained simply by dividing the price1 in US dollars by the nominal output under standard test conditions in watts peak (Wp) of the solar cell, module, or system. To derive the total system cost, one can simply add the balance‐of‐system costs to the module. To obtain a target for the required cost of PV, people need to do is define the electricity price they have to compete with, and run this calculation backward to find the acceptable capital cost. The MUSIC FM study conducted for the European Commission in 1996 identified how solar module costs equivalent to about $0.70/W could be achieved.

  • Photovoltaic Energy Conversion Systems

    This chapter presents a comprehensive overview of grid‐connected PV systems, including power curves, grid‐connected configurations, different converter topologies (both single‐ and three‐phase), control schemes, MPPT, and anti‐islanding detection methods.

Some examples of commercial PV converters have been included for this purpose. In addition, some recently introduced concepts on multilevel converter‐based PV systems for large‐scale PV plants have been discussed, along with trends, challenges, and possible future scenarios of PV converter technology.
