Modelling and Simulation of High Step-Up DC/DC Converter for On-Site Generation System
In this paper, to achieve high step-up voltage gain and high efficiency, a novel high step-up ratio using clamp-circuit in addition capacitor and diode along with the boost inductor is proposed. The capacitor gets charged during the switch-off period and discharged during the switch-on period by the energy stored in the inductor which leads to high voltage gain. The leakage-inductor energy of the coupled inductor is recycled with a passive clamp circuit. Thus, the voltage stress on the main switch is reduced. The switch with low resistance RDS is used to reduce the conduction loss which increases the efficiency. The operating principle and steady-state analyses are discussed in detail. Finally, a prototype circuit with 24-V input voltage, 48-V output voltage, is implemented in the laboratory to verify the performance of the proposed converter.
