This chapter first overviews the dc microgrid architecture, where the primary energy sources are PV panels. Then, the focus is on power electronic converter technologies for PV dc microgrid systems, where an industrial case is also given. Regarding the control dc microgrids for PV collection plants, it is discussed in this chapter as well. A design example is also provided.
