Most of the large scale photovoltaic power plants (LS-PVPP) count on power converters with a central configuration. Advantages such as robustness, low maintenance and installation cost makes this configuration the preferred specially suitable in large scale systems. However, important drawbacks like the low efficiency level make necessary to develop new solutions for future power plants. In this paper a power station for large scale PV systems is proposed, which consists of power inverters synchronized with an interleaving modulation and connected to a multi-winding transformer. The main principles that support this proposal, as well as, simulation results are presented to validate the effectiveness of the proposed configuration.
