Renewable energy systems have received renewed interest due to the rising price of conventional energies and environmental concerns. Several aspects must be addressed in order to improve the energy harvest in terms of new power topologies, new control strategies, and maximum power point tracking (MPPT). On the other hand, the connection of these systems to the grid presents a completely new research area where synchronization with distorted grid, detection of islanding, and the creation of microgrid and smart grid are key concepts.
