Abstract Boost Dc/Dc converter based on Y-source impedance network with high gain without and with closed loop control is analyzed in this paper which provides solutions to distributed generation applications. The analyzed converter consists of a Y- source impedance network which has three-winding inductor tightly coupled for high voltage boosting which is indeed higher than the other classical impedance networks. Turns ratio and winding placement of this inductor can be designed to give the gain desired, while maintaining the duty ratio of switch smaller. Principle of operation is presented and analyzed by mathematical derivations and calculations. Analyzed converter is simulated using MATLAB and the results are in agreement with theoretical analysis and confirm the performance of analyzed converter.

Key Words: Dc/Dc converter, Y-source, impedance network, closed loop control, PI controller.

INTRODUCTION

Distributed Generation powered by renewable energy sources like solar and fuel cells etc., have been gradually recognized as the reliable way of providing premium power for meeting energy demand in future for a low cost. Realizing such a distributed grid however requires more demanding power electronic converters for enhancing the low source voltages to a predefined grid voltage.

Consider fuel cells as an example, their power densities are comparably high, which along with their low emission and quiet operation, make them attractive as distributed sources [1]. However, the output DC voltages are low usually, and vary widely.

Converters with high voltage gains are thus needed generally for tying fuel cells to the distributed grid. Their ranges of gain variation must even be wide for tracking the wide output voltage variations of fuel cells.

It is hence important to style high gain converters for these sources, whose gains should ideally nullify the source variations before a regulated voltage are often obtained for grid interfacing. The converters that are designed should also match with other requirements of the intended sources, which for solar and fuel cells, are to avoid negative currents flowing into them and limit ripple currents drawn from them [2]. The converter types can be DC/DC, AC/AC, AC/DC or DC/AC depending upon the system requirement. For DC/DC converters, conventional boost [3], push-pull [4], half-bridge [5], full-bridge [6] and those with numerous voltage multiplier

cells [7] have been tried for boosting low source voltages to a regulated DC-link voltage between 200V and 600V depending upon the system requirements.

The amount of boosting voltage, demands the inclusion of high frequency transformers in the converter circuits, whose turns ratios are increased proportionally with the demanded gains in almost all cases. The resulting turns ratios and total number of turns might therefore be high if high gain and satisfactory coupling are to be ensured simultaneously [6][8]. Alternatively, cascaded or multilevel techniques can be introduced to the converters for raising their gains but the number of components and complexity involved will undoubtedly increase.

Another way is to use two-winding coupled inductors for boosting voltage, whose turns ratios can be kept low comparably even at high gain voltage. Converters which are implemented with coupled inductors therefore can have higher power densities, as compared to the earlier mentioned methods.

The coupled inductors are different from the high- frequency transformers earlier mentioned since their magnetizing inductances are designed intentionally to be finite (ideally infinite for transformers). Based on this, a few magnetically coupled impedance networks have been found, whose origin dated back to the Z-source impedance network introduced in [9]. The Z-source network and its subsequent quasi [10] [11], embedded [12] [13] and series [14] variations use two inductors and two capacitors for voltage boosting. They have been demonstrated for DC/AC inverter [22], DC/DC converter [23], AC/AC converter [24] and AC/DC converter [25], but their gains are mentioned to be low. That has led to the development of the switched-inductor [15], tapped-inductor [16], cascaded [17], T-source [18], trans-Z-

source [19], and TZ-source [20] networks.

The latter three networks are considered different from the others since they use magnetically coupled inductors for boosting gain. They are also different from those push-pull and bridge-based converters mentioned above in the way that their gains are increased at a rate faster than the usual proportional relationship with turns ratios. Their turns ratios and total number of turns can therefore be comparably lesser, while retaining the necessary magnetic coupling at higher power density. It is hence the intention of this paper to

continue by analyzing a Y-source network implemented as a high boost DC/DC converter [21].

The resulted converter uses a three-winding coupled inductor for flexibly deciding on its gain, which is presently not matched by any related converters. The number of components used is also kept small to allow the converter to be implemented compactly without compromising its performance. Y-source boost DC/DC converter without closed loop consists some error in the transient state.

When SW turns off at t1, VDS across it increases sharply, together with Iin = ID1 and ID2 through the two diodes D1 and D2. These currents, in turn, charge capacitors C1 and C2 with voltage across C2 increasing slightly above voltage across switch VSW at t2. When that happens, diode D2 stops

From equation (3), we know that voltage across capacitor C1,

Since ID2 comes from the dc source, its reduction to zero also

Longer charging time will increase the interval between t1 and t2, while a shorter charging time will reduce it. This variation however will not affect the maximum gain that is produced by the converter.

From Figs. 15 and 16 one can observe that output voltage and current waveforms takes some time in transient state to settle. To reduce this rise time and improve the performance of the converter, closed loop control (PI controller) method is implemented by trial and error and simulated using MATLAB.

By comparing the output voltage of Y-source boost dc/dc converter without and with closed loop control, one can observe that the spike obtained of output voltage in transient state is drastically reduced.

Similarly, for output current also the spike obtained of output current in transient state is improved.

And the ripples obtained in output voltage Y-source boost dc/dc converter without closed loop control are also reduced in output voltage by using closed loop control (PI controller).

V. CONCLUSION

A high gain DC/DC converter operating with a small switch duty ratio has been analyzed and simulated using MATLAB to validate the concept. The analyzed converter uses a Y-source impedance network consisting a three- winding coupled inductor. Turns ratio and winding placement of this inductor can be designed in a way to get the gain desired, while maintaining the duty ratio of switch smaller. The converter is thus unique with more degrees of freedom for tuning the gain, when compared to the existing coupled- inductor-based converters.

Therefore, boost dc/dc converter with high-gain which is based on Y-source impedance network without and with closed loop control have been analyzed providing solution to high voltage gain applications, for example in distributed generation.
