This paper presents a single-phase multi-string Nine-level PV inverter topology for grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) systems with a novel PWM control and fuzzy logic scheme. The Multilevel inverters are extensively used due to their increased power rating reduced EMI, improving harmonic performance. Multilevel inverters are switched at low switching frequency when compared to two level inverters, a single-phase multi-string nine-level PV inverter topology for grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) systems using novel PWM control Technology. A photovoltaic (PV) system generates electricity by direct conversion. The PV strings are cascaded together in parallel configuration and connected to a Nine-level inverter to generate output voltage. Two reference sinusoidal signals are identical to each other with an offset equivalent to the amplitude of the triangular carrier signal were used to generate gate signals for the nine level inverter switches and it is to implement this PWM using PI current control algorithm. The proposed nine level inverter offers much less THD and can operate at near unity power factor. the frequency of it will be 50Hz and from the result we minimizes the number of components and devices as well as switching losses are reduced when compared to the conventional multilevel inverter topology and its interconnects for grid utilization. Fuzzy Logic Control (FLC), originating from control theory focused on mathematical representations of the open-loop mechanism to be controlled, is an integral aspect of fuzzy reasoning. Fuzzy Logic Control has been successfully extended to a wide range of practical issues, including warm water control, robot control, heat exchange, traffic junction control, cement kiln control, vehicle speed control, automotive engineering, and mcar parking and turning, power system and nuclear reactor, on-line shopping, washing machines, etc. The validity of the proposed inverter is verified through simulation and compared with other technique. The output voltage will be in the form of stepped waveform. The proposed system produces less THD and reduction of steady state time
