Growing concerns about environment issues, photovoltaic (PV) power is widely gaining importance all over the world. Use of this solar electric power is increasing day by day in many countries. This paper presents a review on applications of solar photovoltaic power for domestic purposes, irrigation purposes as well as for the grid purposes. Solar photovoltaic (PV) system works under variable solar irradiations and thus various control strategies to utilize this solar power in an efficient manner are also reviewed in this paper.
