Single Conversion Stage Three Port High Gain Converter for PV Integration with DC Microgrid
Keywords:Boost, Simulink, Photovoltaic, Hybrid, Buck-boost, Multiport
A high gain three port converter with a unidirectional port for photovoltaic (PV) side and two bidirectional ports one each for the battery and the DC bus for PV integration to DC microgrid is presented. High gain is achieved by a coupled inductor with switched capacitor, whereas single stage conversion is used between the ports to achieve high efficiency. The proposed converter is modelled in PLECS/MATLAB and the simulated results for various operational modes are validated using a 500 W prototype. For main operating mode, i.e., single input single output (SISO), the efficiency is calculated to be as high as 96 %. Similarly, owing to the reduced number of components, the losses are reduced considerably for different operation modes.
