This paper deals with some design issues involved in a photovoltaic power conditioning system. The power conditioning unit (PCU) is built in a modular way and is controlled by a micro controller for maximum power point tracking (MPPT). The choice o f the power converter and suitable pv_array configuration are also discussed. Power MOSFETs are used as switching elements. Experimental system of 1kW capacity is also explained, with battery charging as a specific application.
