This paper proposes a grid connected single stage converter system for PV applications using Luo converter. Single stage converter system is the system which does two stage operations in one stage. A Luo converter is an advanced dc-dc converter which uses voltage lift technique and the voltage is increased in geometric manner. In this paper, PV power to the distribution system by continuous maximum power tracking. Maximum power point is regulated by controlling the input voltage to the converter. Input voltage control helps for easy functioning of MPPT algorithm. The Luo converter is used along with coupled inductor for the purpose of high gain. The proposed system is simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK
