In this research work, single-stage fifteen levels cascaded DC-interface converter (CDDCLC) is proposed for sun arranged photovoltaic technology (PV) applications. The proposed geography is joined with help DC chopper and H-associate inverter to upgrade the power converter to accomplish the diminished harmonic profile. In assessment with the customary inverter structures, the proposed system is used with diminished voltage stress, decreased switch count and DC source tally. The proposed research work with cascaded DC link converter design requires three DC sources for combining fifteen-level AC output. This investigation structure switching technique is phase opposition and disposition pulse width modulation technique (POPD) which results in improved quality of obtained output AC power with 6.73% THD and also determinedly recommended for power converters used in UPS and drive applications since it is extremely affordable. A simulation and prototype model of fifteen-level CDDCLC system is deployed and its performance is analyzed for various operating conditions.
