Double-Line-Frequency Ripple Model, Analysis, and Impedance Design for Energy-Stored Single-Phase Quasi-Z-Source Photovoltaic System Academic Article uri icon


  • © 1982-2012 IEEE. The battery energy-stored quasi-Z-source (BES-qZS)-based photovoltaic (PV) power generation system combines advantages of the qZS inverter and the battery energy storage system. However, the second-harmonic (2ω) power ripple degrades the system's performance and affects the system's design. An accurate model to analyze the 2ω ripple is very important. The existing models did not consider the battery, or assumed a symmetric qZS network with L-1= L-2 and C-1= C-2, which limits the design freedom and causes oversized impedance parameters. This paper proposes a comprehensive model for the single-phase BES-qZS-PV inverter system, where the battery is considered and there is no restriction of L-1= L-2 and C-1= C-2. Based on the built model, a BES-qZS impedance design method is proposed to mitigate the 2ω ripple with asymmetric qZS network. Simulation and experimental results verify the proposed 2ω ripple model and impedance design method.
