A New Single-stage Solar based Controlled Full-bridge DC-DC Converter


This paper presents a new Single-stage solar based controlled full–bridge DC-DC converter. Solar model is connected on the input side and from the solar model some voltage is received. The circuit has two full wave converters connected. While the first converter acts as an inverter, the second converter functions as a rectifier in-between connected step-up transformer. Controlled converter is used to load side besides a capacitive filter being connected. Finally inductive load is connected to output side. Output voltage and output current are measured. Compared with normal voltage, this converter’s source cost is less because in this work input side solar panel is used. The circuit with all the component parameters will operate at zero-voltage switching which retains the high circuit efficiency.
