This paper presents a comprehensive design and hardware implementation of Z-source inverter. For most of the renewable applications, the conventional VSI has been used which requires an additional boost converter to boost the output voltage. Z-source inverter provides a single stage power conversion topology which can give both voltage buck and boost properties. The control method used in the Z-source inverter is the Simple Boost Control (SBC) technique with Sinusoidal pulse width modulation. The design of the impedance network, hardware results of single stage Z-source inverter are presented in this paper.
