A Single Switch High Step-Up DC/DC Converter with Zero Current Switching Condition
This paper presents an inverting high step-up DC/DC
converter. Basically, this high step-up DC/DC converter is an
appealing interface for solar applications. The proposed topology
takes advantage of using coupled inductors. Due to the leakage
inductances of these coupled inductors, the power MOSFET has the
zero current switching (ZCS) condition, which results in decreased
switching losses. This will substantially improve the overall efficiency
of the power converter. Furthermore, employing coupled inductors
has led to a higher voltage gain. Theoretical analysis and experimental
results of a 100W 20V/220V prototype are presented to verify the
superior performance of the proposed DC/DC converter.
