In this paper the performance analysis of Zero Voltage Switching (ZVS) interleaved converter, Zero Current Switching (ZCS) interleaved converter and soft switching (resonance) interleaved converters for PV power generation system is carried out using MATLAB/SIMULINK simulation. The simulation results were compared based on efficiency, harmonic distortion and settling time. Perturb and Observe MPPT (maximum power point tracking) control is used for simulating the model.
