the effective use of the PV array power. Transmission line

with high voltage long distance is no longer mandatory, when

power is completely supplied by local renewable sources of

power [1]. For the promotion of the connection of renewable

sources of power to conventional ac systems, AC micro grids

[2]–[5] have been contingent. On the other hand, dc power

generated from fuel cells or photovoltaic (PV) panels has to

be converted into ac with the help of, dc/ac inverters,

photovoltaic (PV) panels and dc/dc boost converter for the

sake of connection to an ac grid. In an ac grid, there is

requirement of dc/dc and ac/dc converters for multifarious

office facilities and home to accumulate distinct dc voltages.
