This paper introduces a simulation of three-phase grid-connected solar photovoltaic system. The objective of this paper is to represent a grid synchronization strategy by using the current control method. The focus is to design an inverter control topology which will enable inverter to synchronize with the grid. The theoretical concept of the grid synchronization is described in detail here. The MATLAB simulation results for grid integration of solar PV system agrees with the theoretical concept.
