This paper presents the MPPT (maximum power point tracking) and PCC (point of common coupling) current control strategy for photovoltaic (PV) grid-connected generating system using the quasi-Z-source inverter (QZSI). At first, in order to explain the above controllers, the characteristic of QZSI is analyzed. And then, the MPPT control technique with a modified P&O method, the PCC current control one for the regulation of DC-link capacitor voltage, and the PWM methods for the proposed system are explained. The feasibility of the propose algorithm is verified through the simulation and experiment with 3 kW system.
