This paper presents an efficient design and real time implementation of a complete model and control of grid connected photovoltaic (PV) array. To capture the maximum available solar power, Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) implemented in real time using dSPACE is proposed. An efficient and independent active and reactive P-Q power control is proposed and implemented to transfer the generated power to the grid using a voltage source converter (VSC). The proposed controllers are implemented along with the PV system considered in Real Time Digital Simulator (RTDS) and dSPACE 1104 controller to evaluate their effectiveness. By varying the irradiation and temperature, the effectiveness of the proposed P-Q controller to transfer the generated power to the grid is examined. It is observed that the hardware in the loop results verify the superiority of the proposed approach.
