This paper presents a mathematical analysis of a medium scale Photovoltaic (PV) power generation system connected to the distribution network and of its control system, in which the conversion stage is unique thanks to the absence ofa boost chopper. Boost choppers are usually used as actuator for maximum power point tracking (MPPT). The conducted analysisleads to the conclusion that the used inverter presents two degrees of freedom that can be easily exploited in a control system in which the inverter simultaneously realizes the interconnection tothe grid and at the same time realizes the MPPT control. The structure of the control system is then presented, discussed andthen validated by means of numerical simulation tools.
