    Voltage-type sources have dominated as an input source for power electronics converters for a long type. The existence of duality implies that there are also current-type sources as well. The growing application of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy has evidently shown that the current-type input sources exist in reality such as photovoltaic (PV) generator or the feedback technique used in controlling the power electronics converters in the renewable energy systems changes the power electronic converters to behaving as such. The recent research on the renewable energy systems has indicated that the current-type input sources are very challenging input sources affecting the dynamics of the interfacing converters profoundly. This paper provides a comprehensive survey of the effects of the PV generator on the dynamic behavior of the corresponding interfacing power electronic converters.
