    The main design objective of photovoltaic (PV) systems has been, for a long time, to extract the maximum power from the PV array and inject it into the ac grid. Therefore, the maximum power point tracking (MPPT) of a uniformly irradiated PV array and the maximization of the conversion efficiency have been the main design issues. However, when the PV plant is connected to the grid, special attentio... View full abstract»

    After more than one century of evolution of alternating current (ac) and thanks to the competitive costs of alternators and transformers, today a great majority of electricity is produced, transmitted, and distributed worldwide by means of ac polyphase systems [1], [2]. Nevertheless, about 200 high-voltage direct current (HVDC) systems are spread over the world to provide services where they are m... View full abstract»
