Abstract Environmentally friendly power sources such as photovoltaic solar cells, small scale wind turbines and fuel cells are particularly suitable for distributed generation systems, but typically produce a relatively low magnitude DC voltage output that can vary significantly as operating conditions change. Hence a power electronic inverter is required to condition this output into a more conventional constant magnitude AC supply voltage. Such an inverter should be light weight, low cost, efficient, and provide galvanic isolation between the source and the AC output/grid connection. It is also often preferable that the inverter draws constant DC current from the input energy source, which means it must smooth out the double-fundamental-frequency energy flow of a single phase AC load connection. These requirements can be met with a double conversion system incorporating a high frequency DC-DC step up converter to produce a relatively constant high voltage DC output from the varying DC input, and a high voltage DC-AC inverter and filter to produce the final AC output.
