Micro-inverter technologies are becoming increasingly popular as a choice of grid connection for small-scale photovoltaic systems. Efficiently harvesting the maximum energy from a photovoltaic system reduces the Levelized cost for solar energy, enhancing its role in combatting climate change. Various topologies are proposed through research and have been summarised in this paper. Furthermore, this paper investigates two popular Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) methods through simulation using Matlab Simulink.
