This paper presents a single stage grid connected three phase micro inverter for transfer of power from a solar array to grid controlled by a two level fuzzy logic controller. The system utilizes a line commutated inverter, thus the need for synchronization modules are eliminated. A fuzzy logic controller is designed and developed to track the maximum power from the PV panel and generate an appropriate control variable which is compatible for the switching of thyristorised converter. A two level logic is chosen for faster convergence with variable correction steps for the fuzzy logic controller. The maximum power point voltage window is identified from the PV array characteristics and the rule base for the two levels is developed. The system is tested for two array ratings of 5.8 kW and 8.7 kW to bring out the generic nature of the proposed fuzzy controller for power tracking. The micro inverter system is executed in MATLAB/Simulink for varying ambient conditions of the PV panel and the power balance is verified as proof of theory. © 2017 IEEE.
