Abstract

This paper introduces a dual-switchhigh step-up DC-DC power converter. The proposed converter features a high step-up voltage gain, relatively low cumulative stored energy over its inductors, low voltage stress on the active switches, and high efficiency, even at a relatively high duty ratio. An assessment of the proposed converter against conventional boost and a high step-up power converter is presented in terms of steady-state time, voltage gain, stored energy over its inductors, and efficiency. The assessment shows a reduction of 81.25% and 62.5% of stored energy in inductors to comply with the same operational conditions. Simulation and experimental results are provided to validate the benefits of the proposed dual-switch high step-up power converter.
