In this paper, the cost comparison is carried out among flyback, forward and full bridge converters based upon the number of circuit components. The performance assessment in terms of efficiency of the PV array with MPPT controller using flyback and forward converter is detailed. The design and control of Photovoltaic/battery system using a flyback converter for stand-alone applications is presented. A flyback converter is used to get DC output along with an AC output for high frequency applications without employing an inverter. The PV/battery system uses photovoltaic array as the main source of power and a battery as the storage device. The energy input of the PV system is effectively utilized by adopting an MPPT technique and the storage battery is controlled to balance the load requirements using a bi-directional dc-dc converter. This system ensures that the load demand is satisfied under varying solar irradiance conditions and a constant voltage is maintained for different load conditions. The modelling and control strategy of the implemented system is realized in MATLAB/Simulink environment.
