Abstract:

This paper discusses the latest development in the field of Z-source inverters. Zsource inverters are a new breed of inverters specially designed to be used in photovoltaic applications. It is basically designed to overcome the limitations of traditional voltage source inverter (VSI) and Current source inverter (CSI). Various topologies designed so far are discussed on the basis of size, cost, no. of passive elements, THD of output voltage etc.
