Now a days PV based energy systems are playing a vital role among all the renewable energy sourcesin our day to day life. Proper control should be required to meet the exact load conditions such that it should satisfy the non-linear nature of both the solar irradiance and load. In this paper, a battery is also incorporated along with the PV system to meet the necessary drop due to change in weather conditions. Here, a proper control is achieved by using DSTATCOM to compensate the reactive power. This paper proposes an advanced technique of PWM to generate the gating pulses and applied to a Cascaded H-Bridge multilevel inverter to improve the voltage quality. Here, the entire system is designed to meet the load of Mogulthur (W.G.Dt. Andhra Pradesh). Simulation results are presented through Matlab/Simulink by taking different cases into consideration.
