Abstract:   (2782 Views)
In electricity generation through photovoltaic cells, efficient inverters are required to inject the generated power into the grid. Among the inverters connected to the grid, current source inverters despite their advantages are used less than voltage source ones. Different circuits are presented for these converters. In this paper, several power circuit topologies of the current source inverters, which are an interface between solar panels and the grid, are reviewed. Also, the inverters are compared from the point of some indexes like efficiency, voltage transmission ratio, total harmonic distortion, leakage currents, and their reduction methods. The importance of these indexes is investigated too. Categorization is for full-bridge inverters and special structures groups. The first group includes the conventional inverter, 4-leg inverter, CH7 CSI, H7 CSI, three-mode, and other structures. The second group consists of inverters with special structures and is independent of the conventional CSI. The summary of the studies is presented in a table.
