Abstract

With the rapid transformation from fossil fuel-based energy systems to renewable-based energy systems the application of a high gain boost DC-DC converter is becoming the main attraction due to its wide range of numerous applications. This specific study presents an improved high gain non isolated quadratic boost DC-DC converter (QBC) with voltage gain three times of the quadratic boost converter. The proposed non-isolated category topology is the modified version of the quadratic boost converter where the 2nd inductor of the QBC is replaced by a voltage multiplier cell (VMC) and a switch capacitor network is integrated with the VMC to increase the voltage gain as well as to reduce the switch’s voltage stress. Moreover, the continuous input current and common ground feature of this proposed circuit configuration have shaped its potential application by making it advantageous over other non-isolated based high gain boost converters. To support its feasibility a rated power of 150 W prototype is developed after validating the results by Plecs software. The voltage gain offered by this proposed circuit configuration is justified by experimental results and the software simulation. A comprehensive analysis and components design is also formulated and documented in this study.
