This study is manly introducing a modified integrating method which is much suitable for smart grids. In smart grid the integration between the outputs of the renewable energy sources, such as solar energy, wind energy and the conventional power sources takes place. This integration may affect the power quality negatively; therefore, some considerations should be taken into account, i.e., the power magnitude, phase, and frequency should be synchronized, and be identical during the entire time of integration between the two different sources of power, the renewable energy source and the conventional power grid. To ensure this matching, Matlab/Simulink simulation and prototype were proposed to produce the optimum values of the previous parameters (power magnitude, phase, and frequency). M file was written to choose the optimum value for the Boost converter component. The verification of DC to AC model and parameters was accomplished by Matlab /Simulink simulation. PWM codes were written to drive the Boost converter and the DC to AC inverter. Moreover, a prototype was implemented and tested.
