Nowadays, the single state inverter for the grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) systems is becoming more and more popular as they can reduce circuit complexity resulting in less power losses of the inverter. This paper focuses on the use of model predictive control (MPC) to control a 3-phase and 2-level single-state grid-connected inverter in order to regulate the PV maximum power point (MPP). The algorithm of MPC scheme was done to measure the simultaneous current signal including predicting the next sampling current flow. The reference current (Id*) was used to control the distribution of electrical power from the solar cell to the grid. To be able to control the maximum power point tracking (MPPT) when the sunlight suddenly changes, so that a developing MPPT based on estimation current perturbation and observation (ECP&O-MPPT) technique was used to control the reference current. This concept was experimented by using MATLAB/Simulink software package. The proposed technique was tested and compared with the old technique. The simulation results showed that the developed MPPT technique can track the MPP faster when the light changes rapidly under 1,000 W/m2, 25°C standard climatic conditions. The MPPT time was 0.015 s. The total harmonic distortion (THD) was 2.17% and the power factor was 1.
