Abstract—Solar energy source is an “indigenous” environmental option, economically competitive with conventional power generation. This paper can serve as a compendium of the tremendous amount of new technology being developed in this field. Photovoltaic (PV) arrays are generally the bulkiest and most expensive parts of solar-powered electrical generation systems. Optimum utilization of available power from these arrays is therefore essential and can considerably reduce the size, weight and cost of such power systems. Again the photo-voltaic energy system requires storage to meet the energy demand during period of low solar irradiation and night time. The controller incorporates a DC-DC converter and is used as a controlled energy-transfer-equipment between the main energy source (PV arrays) and an auxiliary energy system. This paper deals the design of DC to DC converter which makes voltage at a specified value. This voltage is converted to AC by using inverter for successfully connecting to the grid.

Index Terms—Super-Lift converters, solar cells, PV cells.
