This voltage multiplier increases the converter voltage to a significant level by a PWM switching technique. The duty cycle in the PWM controller controls the step-up converter operation and maintains the required output level. An inverter inverts the boost converter DC output to AC power and fed to the induction motor (IM). The operation of the IM is mainly based on the suitable choice of converter-inverter system. Inverter operation is controlled by a PWM switching technique. This paper mainly deals with the photovoltaic (PV) integration of Voltage Doubler converter and an inverter (DC-AC) fed IM drive for water pumping applications. Solar energy from the renewable resource is the primary source for this paper because of its availability. The electrical equivalent of available solar power is 77000 TW, and PV technology is adapting to convert solar energy into electrical. In renewable energy applications, a new high step-up converter is using to boost up the input variable low-voltage. Converter doubles the input voltage by using a voltage multiplier circuit. The proposed model is designed in MATLAB and the output waveforms are plotted.
