The utilization of battery can be improved by designing an appropriate charger capable of fast charging. Photovoltaic panel is used as input source for converter. The objective of this paper is to investigate the converter topologies and control techniques for fast charging of a battery which are required for its optimum design. A charging monitoring system is implemented based on converter technologies. Experimental simulation work is carried out in MATLAB-7.7b. A PI-gain controller feedback is used with reference voltage of 15 V for the ripple free output voltage.
Keywords: Converter technology, fast charging, MATLAB based monitoring system.
