Design and Anaysis of Soft Switching Solar Inverter
This paper deals with the analysis of DC-AC converters (Inverters) with different Pulse Width Modulation
(PWM) techniques used to control output voltage and harmonics. As inverter switching frequency increases, switching
losses will increase due to turn ON and turn OFF. So it is necessary to reduce switching losses by in cooperating soft
switching technique along with inverter for solar inverter. In this paper soft switching techniques i.e. ZVS techniques for the
reduction of the losses are implemented in simulation and analyzed in detail for different PWM techniques.
