Photovoltaic panels scheme and electrical characteristics have showed, advantages and disadvantages serial panels connection and use of separate microinverter for each panel have considered. Boost-converter for renewable energy scheme, the working principles, mathematical equations and expressions for calculation of inductance and capacitance have presented. Analysis of iron powder, sendust and ferrite using as materials for inductor core and their electrical characteristics have made, the calculation results for boost-converter inductor with the number of photovoltaic panels to 10 have showed. References 4, figures 7, table 1.
Key words: boost-converter, photovoltaic panels, inverter, microcontroller, renewable energy, inductance, iron powder, sendust, loss, core.
