This paper proposes a cost effective, compact and precise photovoltaic emulator. It is able to emulate accurately the current-voltage characteristics of a PV source for varying temperature and solar radiation. The proposed system also has the ability to emulate the re-configuration of the PV panels for series and parallel connection. The emulator is developed with a galvanically isolated power electronic topology with high frequency transformer, to achieve a light weight and compact system for… CONTINUE READING
