Paralleled boost asymmetric configurations operating in discontinuous conduction mode (DCM) are suitable for integrating dissimilar green energy generating sources and control algorithms in versatile scenarios where voltage step-up, low cost, stable operation, low output ripple, uncomplicated design, and acceptable efficiency are needed. Unfortunately, research has mainly been conducted on the buck, sepic, switched-capacitor, among other asymmetric configurations operating in continuous conduction mode (CCM), to the authors’ knowledge. For asymmetric boost type topologies, achieving simultaneous CCM is not a trivial task, and other problems such as circulating currents arise. Research for interleaved converters cannot be easily extended to asymmetric boost topologies due to the dissimilarity of control algorithms and types of sources and parallel stages. This paper analytically establishes properties of stability, output ripple, output voltage, and design for asymmetrical paralleled boost converters operating in DCM with simultaneous or phase delayed (sequential) triggering. A 300 W experimental design and the respective tests allow validation of such properties, resulting in an easy-to-implement configuration with acceptable efficiency. View Full-Text
