Abstract: Fossil fuels, being a non-renewable resource, have been declining while the demand for its usage has been growing. The increasing concern of the environment, especially the greenhouse effects, has motivated the humanity towards exploring the use of renewable energy sources and reduces dependency on fossil fuels for its irreplaceable nature. Singapore, an ideal area to implement solar energy because of her geographical location as there would be a significant amount of sunlight available throughout the year. As such, the Singapore government has already made their official intentions of developing the photovoltaic industry as an emerging industry. The report provides the details for the Design and Development of Grid-connected Solar Energy System. Literature reviews of Photovoltaic applications and its related theory will be provided in this report. There would also be the discussion on the implementation, testing and analysis of the work accomplished. The research and implementation of DC-DC converter, DC-AC inverter and Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) of Photovoltaic (PV) module is the focus of this report. Details of some of the testing procedures and results for the design systems implemented would also be provided in the report for discussions and verification. Lastly, recommendations for enhancement to improve the systems designed would be provided after the conclusion of the project.
