Abstract : Importance of PV based energy systems cannot be denied with quickly increase in renewable energy demand. Due to inherent uncertainties and non-linear behaviour of grid tied PV system, conventional control strategies are unable to provide satisfactory performance. Therefore, key purpose of this paper is to design non linear controller for the control of grid tied PV system. A novel control strategy is devised by utilizing Lyapunov base finite time non-linear reactive power and dc link voltage control. This strategy employes Lyapunov approach to ensure stability and guarantees robustness. With this control strategy, better and superior performance is observed in comparison to proportional integral controller. Furthermore, simulation results are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of proposed algorithm. Various disturbances of system such as change in solar insolation level, change in reference parameters, faults on buses are considered. With this control strategy, settling time and oscillations are found significantly less than PI controller.
