This two-part paper presents a comprehensive comparative study on parallel power processing (PPP) and standard schemes in dc/dc converters for photovoltaic (PV) energy systems. It is demonstrated how PPP can improve direct energy transfer (DET), which results in PV systems operating at higher voltage and efficiency. Discussions of the concepts, hypotheses, and computer simulations are presented in Part I. Part II provides the experimental results, which confirm the validity of the analysis and simulations.
