In recent years, renewable energy has become very important and has been given a lot of attention due to the fear of the exhaustion of non-renewable energy in addition to the fact that renewable energy is totally free-pollution and inexhaustible. One of the most well-known renewable sources is solar energy. This paper gives the detailed mathematical model and the characteristics of a photovoltaic array, then it illustrates an artificial intelligence based fuzzy logic FLC maximum power point tracking MPPT control method, next a single stage operating based on the new impedance Z-source inverter which has been used as an interface between the PV system and the grid is presented. Lastly the simulation is achieved using Matlab Simulink and the results are discussed.
