Abstract

In this paper, a voltage-current mode controller is proposed to adjust both the input current and DC voltage of a boost-inverter in order to improve the performance of the photovoltaic (PV). The proposed system is based on fuzzy-making-decision predictive voltage-current controller (FPVCC). The simulation results show that in case of using the proposed FPVCC, the input current of a PV array is in the limited value (i.e., is approximate 27% of the short-circuit current of a PV panel) compared with a classical voltage controller, an over-current is passing through PV array (i.e., is about 155% of the short-circuit current). Also, the waveform of the output voltage is sinusoidal with low total harmonic distortion (THD), i.e. 4.21%, and the power obtained from a PV array with FPVCC is approximately 6 times of power obtained without a controller.
