The work presented in this article proposes the design and the realization of a PWM controller, which allows the control of the power switches of DC-DC converters of discrete two-stage photovoltaic systems in series. The method employed is based on the use of two drivers by exploiting their functionalities in order to improve and control the two power switches of the discretized photovoltaic system. The proposed technique is validated by experimentation on a photovoltaic system, the upper stage of which can request a floating voltage on the MOSFET drain of up to 30V. the studied PV installation is equipped by a protection circuit block for protect the PV equipments in the event of poor connection or deterioration of elements in system blocks. The simulations and the experiments showed a good functioning of the control unit which ensured: An amplitude of the PWM signals large enough to control the power switches, optimal system operation regardless of load and weather changes and good efficiency, and protection of the installation in the event of malfunction.
