This paper focuses on the latest development of modeling and simulation of the grid connected photovoltaic energy conversion system. The paper presents a closed loop high step up high voltage gain converter with a output voltage multiplier module for the photovoltaic application. Solar panel circuit can effectively extract maximum solar power from PV panel using maximum power point tracking technique. Modeling includes the modeling of SPV array, P & O MPPT block, Power electronics converter, inverter in the MATLAB/SIMULINK. The paper also discusses the power connection to the grid.
