This paper offers the analysis of super lift DC-DC Luo converter under the various irradiation of
the PV system for driving asynchronous motor with the help of closed loop PI controller based
voltage source inverter. In order to track the maximum output power from the PV panel, the INC
Maximum power point tracking algorithm is also implemented along with the Super lift DC-DC
Luo Converter. The maximum power point tracking of the PV output for all climatic conditions is a
key aspect to maximize the efficiency of the PV panel output for successful PV applications. So
this proposed method is designed and analyzed for changing climatic condition to drive variable
speed asynchronous motor using pulse width modulated voltage source inverter in closed loop
control. The Photo Voltaic output voltage, converter voltage and motor speed has been recorded
and analyzed by using MATLAB/ Simulink software.
