Abstract: This work is concerned with the generation of solar power using MPPT with the help of modelling and also simulation of photovoltaic (PV) array interfaced with boost converter then supply it to the three-phase grid connected Voltage Source Converter (VSC). In present scenario solar energy is a sustainable and reliable renewable energy resource that is integrated into the main electrical supply grid with the use of power electronics converters. The VSC is connected to the grid with the help of a filter and transformer. VSC needs a dc link voltage across the shunt capacitor which is provided by the solar PV which behaves as a voltage source. An Incremental and Conductance (ICE) mechanism is used to achieve maximum power point (MPP) from the solar PV array. The Power generated from the solar PV is varying in nature due to varying solar insolation and temperature. So the VSC balance the magnitude of the grid voltage at PCC. Also to reduce the harmonics active LCL filter is used. The modelling of the system is simulated by MATLAB/SIMULINK software.
