Due to the characteristics of low cost and high efficiency, the transformerless photovoltaic (PV) grid-connected inverters have been popularized in the application of solar electric generation system in residential market. Unfortunately, the leakage current through the stray capacitors between the PV array and the ground is harmful. This paper focuses on the leakage current suppressing method, in which all common-mode paths are considered. First, the common-mode analytical model at switching frequency is developed, and the rules of eliminating switching frequency common-mode source are summarized based on this model. The existing full-bridge- and half-bridge-type converters have been analyzed by using the developed model and rules, and then, a new full-bridge-type converter structure and a compensation strategy for half-bridge-type inverter have been presented finally.
