2.4 kW DC Grid-Tied PV System with Microinverters

11.1 Introduction

This laboratory and the one in the following chapter together represent the “capstone” of the 10 preceding chapters in the textbook. The earlier labs involved (a) acquiring basic skills in computational methods, (b) understanding and applying electrical circuitry concepts, (c) understanding the sun as a resource, (d) the site survey, (e) characterizing PV modules, (f) demonstrating the basic skills of mechanical and electrical installation, (g) designing and simulating PV systems, and (h) designing and installing an off-grid PV system.

Ironically, the design and integration of small off-grid systems represent a greater challenge than small grid-tied systems, because ...
