Abstract

The goal of the project was to design and build a two-stage solar microinverter that can be used as a testbench for MPPT algorithms and control structures. Testing these algorithms and control structures will give future researchers the ability to test their various ideas to further develop solar energy research. A prototype microinverter consisting of a flyback DC-DC converter and a full bridge DC-AC inverter was designed, assembled and tested. The converter and inverter sections function individually, but further work is needed to combine the two sections into a full microinverter.
