This paper analyses the conventional boost converter to mitigate partial shading effects in Photovoltaic (PV) panels. Analysis of a string of several boost converters connected in series in the structure of Module Integrated Converters (MICs) has been developed for better combating the problems of solar energy harvesting. Also, small signal ac analysis of the converter in Discontinuous Conduction Mode (DCM) is proposed. This operation mode has been used to reduce dimensions of the proposed MIC… CONTINUE READING
