Abstract: Renewable energy has been rapidly increased in terms of installed capacity. However, the electronic components inside such a system can cause a serious threat such as Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) to nearby sensitive devices/equipment. This paper aims to study on performance of DC-DC boost converter connected to photovoltaic panel and how to reduce EMI emissions issued in the system. A passive EMI low-pass filtering is one of various mitigation techniques. The designed converter connected to photovoltaic panel and EMI filter are tested in both simulation software and field testing by using EN55022 standard as a reference.
