The proposed paper is based on the Switched Inductor Quasi Z Source Inverter (SL-qZSI). The photovoltaic is the source of the proposed circuit and the SL-qZSI fed induction motor. The speed of an induction motor (IM) is controlled by space vector modulation (SVM). The proposed converter is to increase the voltage and also to regulate the dc link voltage. The proposed SL-qZSI has use the passive element in the main circuit which increases the voltage and reduces the voltage ripple. The single diode based solar photovoltaic (PV) has improved the reliability, efficient and reduce the voltage stress across the capacitor. The solar PV has employed with maximum power point traction (MPPT) algorithm to extract the maximum power from the PV system. The novel control method of proposed system is to generate more power in the output of the inverter. In order to filter the ripple and the proposed circuit implementation is verified by using MATLAB/ Simulink.
