Abstract


ABSTRACT: This paper presents review analysis boost DC-DC converter controlled by a PI Controller to enhance reliability and flexibility. In the proposed converter the conversion efficiency of power is improved and the switching stress of the MOSFET switch is also reduced. In this converter there are two sub-stages. One is boost-fly-back semi stage which improves power transfer from input to load. The second one is dc-dc fly-back semi stage that provides good output voltage regulation. The bulk capacitors are connected in series with primary windings of 2:1 fly-back transformer which reduces switch stress and improves voltage regulation; the parallel connection improves the efficiency. Simulation results of the 1-kW, 120-V prototype converter connected with a PEM fuel cell stack closely agreed with simulation results in MATLAB/Simulink.
