Single stage single phase grid connected PV system
A single stage single phase grid connected PV system harnesses energy from the sun via photovoltaic (PV) panels, and then feeds it back into the grid. Matlab is a powerful software package used to simulate such systems in order to improve efficiency and control. The software can be used to model the system components, including power electronics converters, inverters, grid connections, and batteries. It provides detailed data that can be used to optimize settings such as operating temperature, operating voltage levels, voltage regulation points and PV array size. In addition, Matlab can provide vital insights into fault detection and short-circuit protection mechanisms which are important safety considerations.
