A Novel Topology for Controlling a Four Port DC-DC Boost Converter for a Hybrid PV/PV/Battery Power System

Dharani M, Usha P.V.


This paper proposes a four port three input-dc-dc boost converter for hybridising two photovoltaic systems and a storage medium. Three unidirectional ports are utilised to interface the converter with the two input sources and the output load. A bidirectional port interfaces the converter with the storage system. The two sources individually or simultaneously supply the load and charge the battery. The proposed technique employs only four independently controlled switches with different duty ratios. The regulated dc output can be obtained by controlling these four switches and tracking the maximum power of the two photovoltaic systems. Three different modes of operation of converter influenced by the state of battery are presented. The proposed system is validated and verified by simulation performed in MATLAB under various operating conditions.
