This paper presents a new approach to control the grid current and dc-link voltage for maximum power point tracking and improvement of the dynamic response of a three-phase grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) system. To control the grid current and dc-link voltage, the zero dynamic design approach of feedback linearization is used, which linearizes the system partially and enables controller design for reduced-order PV system. This paper also describes the zero dynamic stability of the three-phase grid-connected PV system, which is a key requirement for the implementation of such controllers. Simulation results on a large-scale grid-connected PV system show the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme in terms of delivering maximum power into the grid.
