This paper presents the analysis and implementation of an LCLC resonant converter working as maximum power point tracker (MPPT) in a PV system. This converter must guarantee a constant DC output voltage and must vary its effective input resistance in order to extract the maximum power of the PV generator. Preliminary analysis concludes that not all resonant load topologies can achieve the design conditions for a MPPT. Only the LCLC and LLC converter are suitable for this purpose.
