In meeting ever increasing energy demand, it is important to do continuous research in energy sources, their efficient use and distribution of energy. Due to many intrinsic benefits, distributed generation (DG) is gaining acceptance. However, more researchers are involved in finding ways to increase the efficiency and reducing the cost ofDG systems in order to make them more widespread and affordable. In making it a reality, power conversion should be made efficient and effective. Another way to reduce the cost and increase the efficiency is to use the unused capacity of such DG systems to provide ancillary services to distribution network. Hence, this research is focused on developing power converter topologies and controllers suitable for DG to achieve aforementioned goals.
