Abstract: The power demand is increased day by day and generation of electrical energy from non-renewable sources are not able to meet the demand. An alternate energy sources are the only solution to meet the power demand. The power generation from solar energy with photovoltaic effect is plays a major role. This Solar PV system has low efficiency. The power semiconductor devices and converter circuit along with inductive / magnetic circuit. The Inverter circuit have an influence on photovoltaic power generation to improve the level of output voltage along with efficiency. In this paper a new transformer less DC-AC converter is proposed, and it has high efficiency, requires less cost when compares with conventional inverter with transformer. Transformer less self-commutated photovoltaic inverter is reflected the advantages of central and string inverters. It gives high output power and low-cost converter. These transformer less DC-AC converter is connect with Boost/Buck-Boost converter for the better output. So, this proposed DC-AC converter topology is not required mechanical switching and it is lighter in size. The PV technology has low efficiency and utilize more cost for generation of power. The proposed transformer less PV inverter is the better choice to increase the usefulness and reduce the charge rate of this PV system.
