Central-Station (CS) Photovoltaic (PV) systems have the potential of economically displacing significant amounts of centrally generated electricity. However, the technical viability and, to some extent, the economic viability of central-station PV generation technology will depend upon the availability of large power conditioners that are efficient, safe, reliable, and economical. This paper is an overview of the technical and cost requirements that must be met to develop economically viable power conditioning subsystems (PCS) for central-station power plants. The paper also examines various already commercially available PCS hardware that may be suitable for use in today's central PV power stations.
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: References on the diverse applications of photovoltaic (PV)
systems around the world are classified. The classes presented are (i)
stand-alone, (ii) grid-connected, (iii) PV-thermal, (iv) PV-wind, and
(v) dedicated applications. 73 papers are cited and classified into
these five categories including a brief summary of each paper. Out of
these, 42 papers relate to grid-connected applications in many
industrialized countries of the world. These papers reflect the
importance given to such applications. Due to the rapidly changing
nature of PV and related industries, only papers published during the
last ten years are considered
