  author={Carlos Meza and Juan J. Negroni and Domingo Biel and Francesc Guinjoan},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics},
This paper presents a two-control loop design considering the nonlinear time-varying characteristics of a single-phase grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) full-bridge central inverter. The control scheme design is based on the energy-balance modeling of the PV system and enables the design of a voltage loop linear discrete controller ensuring the stability of the system for the whole range of PV array operating conditions. A set of experimental results carried out on a laboratory prototype is… CONTINUE READING
