The energy sources like oil, coal and natural gas are depleting very quickly. Nuclear fission produces radioactive waste which is very harmful for human body. So we need alternative source like renewable energy sources for electric power generation. Energy from the sun is one of the promising options option for electricity generation as it is available everywhere. In this thesis Paper, the performance of a single phase Grid connected PV system is studied. The system includes PV module, a DC/DC converter, a DC/AC inverter and LCL filter . There are two control mechanism in the designed PV system where the first one is for maximum power point tracking of the PV module and another one is for injecting the desired amount of active and reactive power to the grid. The whole system is designed and simulated by MATLAB'simulink'.
