A dual-input high step-up isolated converter (DHSIC) is proposed in this paper, which incorporates Sheppard Taylor circuit into power stage design so as to step up voltage gain. In addition, the main circuit adopts boosting capacitors and switched capacitors, based on which the converter voltage gain can further be improved significantly. Since the proposed converter possesses an inherently ultra-high step-up feature, it is capable of processing low input voltages. The DHSIC also has the important features of leakage energy recycling, switch voltage clamping, and continuous input-current obtaining. These characteristics advantage converter efficiency and benefit the DHSIC for high power applications. The structure of the proposed converter is concise. That is, it can lower cost and simplifies control approach. The operation principle and theoretical derivation of the proposed converter are discussed thoroughly in this paper. Simulations and hardware implementation are carried out to verify the correctness of theoretical analysis and to validate feasibility of the converter as well.
