PV Balancers: Concept, Architectures, and Realization

  title={PV Balancers: Concept, Architectures, and Realization},
  author={Huimin Zhou and Junjian Zhao and Yehui Han},
  journal={2012 IEEE Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition (ECCE)},
This paper presents a new concept of module-integrated converters called PV balancers for photovoltaic applications. The proposed concept enables independent maximum power point tracking for each module, and dramatically decreases the requirements in terms of electrical rating, size, and manufacturing cost for power converters. The power rating of a PV… CONTINUE READING
