This volume outlines the global energy situation and current status of photovoltaic power generation both in and out of China. From there, it goes on to discuss the basic principles and electrical characteristics of photovoltaic cells, evaluate various major MPPT tracking algorithms and isolated island protection technologies, and analyze the implementation of digital phase-locked loops (DPLL). Methods for exploring various circuit topologies and common principles of mode current suppression techniques for non-isolated single-phase photovoltaic grid-connected inverters are explored alongside examinations of partial shadow problems and their suppression methods, single-phase and three-phase control strategies for PV grid-connected inverters, and the DPWM technology used to improve the efficiency of inverters. Finally, various low-voltage, ride-through control methods are evaluated.


Having graduated from the Xi’an University of Technology in 1998, Sun Xiangdong has been teaching at the university until now. From 2006 to 2008, he did postdoctoral research on new energy power generation technology at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, supported with the scholarship awarded by the Japanese Ministry of Education. He has been engaged in one project of the National Natural Science Foundation in China and in charge of two projects of the Shaanxi Natural Science Fund, two special projects funded by the Provincial Education Department. He presided over two enterprise projects involving 50kW and 10kW grid-connected inverters, and more than ten enterprise projects concerning the inverter and the resonant switching power supplies.
