Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 435)


Technological advancement in power electronic systems, renewable energy usage is tremendous applications in industries and electric vehicles. Various solar-powered systems are designed, and performances have been improved by the researchers. This proposed work will imply on power-handling capability of five-phase inverter with DC Buck-Boost converter. Power from the solar cells will be buck boosted and charged to a battery and then used to power up the adjustable speed drives and AC systems. This paper is a simulation work, proposed to study the power-handling capability of the renewable energy and used in five-phase VSI, and also output of five-phase DC converter ripple voltage is analyzed and found minimum ripple voltage for DC-powered applications.
