Abstract: Solar radiation represents the largest energy flow entering the terrestrial ecosystem. After reflection and absorption in the atmosphere, some 100,000TW hit the surface of Earth and undergo conversion to all forms of energy used by humans. This resource is enormous and corresponds to almost 6,000 fold the current global consumption of primary energy (13.7TW). Thus, solar energy has the potential of becoming a major component of a sustainable energy portfolio with constrained greenhouse gas emissions. This report offer the detailed review and comparison of power inverter topologies designed for solar energy system realization. Recommendations were also presented based on the conclusion obtained from the comparison. Besides, the basics of most elements present in a solar energy system were also introduced, thus enabling the reader to have a better understanding in a wide multidisciplinary area of solar energy system philosophy.
