Development of a four phase floating interleaved boost converter for photovoltaic systems
MetadataShow full item record
This paper explores the advantages of the Floating Interleaved Boost Converter, particularly with regards to solar photovoltaic power systems. This converter offers improved efficiency and voltage gain, while having lower input current ripple than other DC-DC boost converters. An analog linear feedback controller was developed, and adapted for discrete control. Two Maximum Power Point Tracking methods were explored, and their performances were evaluated in simulation. An experimental prototype was developed and demonstrated. The results show that this is a promising converter topology with many potential benefits for solar power applications.

A general approach to control a Positive Buck-Boost converter to achieve robustness against input voltage fluctuations and load changesBoora, A.; zare, F.; Ledwich, G.; Ghosh, Arindam (2008)A positive buck-boost converter is a known DC- DC converter which may be controlled to act as buck or boost converter with same polarity of the input voltage. This converter has four switching states which include all the ...
Iyer, Narayanaswamy P.R. (2012)Matrix converters (MCs) are essentially forced commutated cycloconverters with inherent four quadrant operation consisting of a matrix of bidirectional switches such that there is a switch for each possible connection ...
Ambia, M.; Al-Durra, A.; Muyeen, S.M. (2011)In this paper, an ac-dc hybrid micro-grid system including a centralized power control scheme is proposed. Multiple ac-dc bidirectional converters connected in parallel are considered in the system instead of a single ...
