In this paper, a three phase Semi-Z-Source Inverter (SZSI) with Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm for Photovoltaic (PV) applications is presented. The proposed system is able to track the maximum power point of the PV array and produce an AC voltage at its output by using a nonlinear Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation (SPWM). The proposed SZSI shares the same reference between the DC side and AC side, which led to reduce the common mode voltage and work as four wire topologies. Different from the traditional Z-source/quasi-Z-source inverter families, shoot-through zero state is not applicable to the semi-Z-source inverter. In addition, it reduces the THD as well as DC current components at the output during DC-AC conversion. The feasibility of the proposed SZSI is verified by simulation results.
