Comparative Evaluation of PI and Fuzzy Logic Controller for PV Grid-Tie Quasi Z-Source Multilevel Inverter
This paper portrays a comparative analysis report of Proportional-Integral (PI) and Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC) for total Power control of Photovoltaic (PV) based grid-tie single-phase five- level Quasi Z-Source Inverter (qZSI). The adopted power control scheme allows for independent maximum power point tracking (MPPT) and independent control of DC link voltage in each H-bridge of the proposed inverter. This analysis is carried out to depict the differences in the performance of both the controllers. It also demonstrates the suitability of the controllers for the proposed topology. The proposed inverter has the advantages of reduction in size of the impedance network, negligence of boost converter stage and boosting of voltage with the help of 9shoot through states. The power control scheme has been implemented with both PI controller and FLC. Simulation has been carried out using MATLAB software and the results are presented.
