SKU: Design And Analysis Of High Gain Modified SEPIC Converter Category:



Two high static gain step-up DC-DC converters based on the modified SEPIC converter are presented in this project. The proposed topologies present low switch voltage and high efficiency for low input voltage and high output voltage applications. The configurations with magnetic coupling and without magnetic coupling are presented and analyzed. The magnetic coupling allows the increase of the static gain maintaining a reduced switch voltage. The theoretical analysis and experimental results show that both structures are suitable for highstatic gain applications as a renewable power sources with low DC output voltage.


When a high step-up ratio is necessary for the implementation of the first power stage, the usual solution is the use of isolated DC-DC converters. The power converters used with renewable energy sources must present a high efficiency due to the high cost of the energy source, as photovoltaic module or fuel-cells.  Only part of the power processed by the converter is transferred to the output through the coupling inductor and another part of the power is transferred directly by the non isolated converter, reducing the weight, volume and losses of the transformer. The leakage inductance is a problem for the single switch isolated DC-DC converters resulting in switch overvoltage and the energy stored in the leakage inductance must be dissipated in snubber or clamping circuits.


This project presents two topologies of modified single-ended primary inductance converter (SEPIC) without magnetic coupling and with magnetic coupling for photovoltaic (PV) application. The single-ended primary inductance converter (SEPIC) is used in application with low input voltage and output voltage is considerably high. Proposed topologies based on modification of single-ended primary inductance converter (SEPIC) converter with voltage multiplier .With the proposed modification the static gain of the DC-DC- Converter increases both the topology provides the high static gain with the low switch voltage, reduce reverse recovery current of output diode for low input voltage renewable application

The efficiency of proposed converter without magnetic coupling is equal to 91.9% operating with input voltage equal to 15 V, output voltage equal 150 V and output power equal 100 W. The efficiency of proposed converter with magnetic coupling is equal to 92.2% operating with input voltage equal to 15 V, output voltage equal 300 V and output power equal 100 W. The commutation losses of the proposed converter with magnetic coupling are reduced due to the presence of the transformer leakage inductance and the secondary voltage multiplier that operates as a non dissipative clamping circuit to the output diode voltage.
