M. Godoy Simões, Danilo I. Brandao, Carlos Liquet, Fernando A. Manzano & Lucas F. Ramos
In this paper the advantages of an enhanced boost converter are utilized in a photovoltaic based energy system, in order to improve the efficiency and the output/input voltage gain. In addition, this circuit topology allows lower input current ripple than conventional single-switch DC/DC boost converters, increasing photovoltaic energy yield. The floating interleaved boost converter was modeled, and a linear feedback controller was discretized for use with an embedded microcontroller. This controller consisted of a decoupled...
