In this paper, the grid-integrated DCML inverter-based DSTATCOM is presented for elimination of harmonics caused by the nonlinear load and injection of active power harvested from PV arrays. It is well-known multilevel converters that can possess great advantages such as low switching losses and reduced size of filter requirement. The synchronous reference frame-based reference current estimation is presented with maximum power point tracking (MPPT). The MPPT algorithm based on perturb and observe is integrated with synchronous reference frame scheme. The simulated response of the DCML inverter-based DSTATCOM is effective for injecting active power from photovoltaic system.
