An overview on recent developments and a summary of the state-of-the-art of inverter technology in Europe for singlephase grid-connected Photovoltaic (PV) systems for power levels up to 5 k W is provided in this paper. The information includes details not only on the topologies commercially available but also on the switching devices employed and the associated switching frequencies, efficiency, price trends and market share. Finally, the paper outlines issues associated with the development of
