Abstract

A new modified LCLC series resonant circuit based dual-input single out-put isolated converter is proposed for hybrid energy systems. With this novel converter topology, two different voltage sources can be decoupled completely and transfer the power from two separate dc sources to dc load simultaneously. The proposed converter consists only two controllable switches for integrating two separate voltage sources; it can provide good voltage regulation and soft switching over wide load range. During unequal input voltages, the converter continues to maintain soft-switching and voltage regulation. The proposed converter operation and design considerations are outlined. A laboratory prototype rated for 250 Watt power at an output voltage of 380 V was built-up and tested. Experimental results confirm the functionality of the converter in terms of voltage regulation and soft switching over a wide load range. View Full-Text
