dual inductor-fed boost converter with an auxiliary transformer and voltage doubler

Open access


This paper presents a dual inductor-fed boost converter with an auxiliary transformer and voltage doubler for sustainable energy power converters. The new topology integrates a two-phase boost converter and a dual inductor-fed boost converter. The energy stored and transferred by both inductors can attain a wide input-voltage and load range which uses a constant switching frequency, by controlling the time duration of the simultaneous conduction of the two switches. Among other current-fed type boost converters the presented topology is attractive due to the high voltage conversion ratio, less stress on the components and less switch conduction loss. To verify the feasibility of this topology, the principles of operation, theoretical analysis, and experimental waveforms are presented for a 1 kW prototype.
