Integrated Dual Output Converter with Low Electric Stress on Components
In recent days there is a vast development in the field of power electronic converters. Necessity of multiple level of voltage demand is raised for single supply system. To meet different level of load demand single input and multiple output topologies (SIMO) are created. There are many such converters fall under SIMO converters. The Integrated Dual Output Converter (IDOC) is one among them. The IDOC is a DC-DC converter that performs boost and buck operations simultaneously with a single input. It is basically evolved from boost converter, replacing a single switch by couple of switches. Both the switches are connected in series not only to perform both buck and boost operation but also to provide continuous input current. Main advantage of IDOC over conventional boost and buck converter is the reduced number of switches. Comparisons among another six buck-boost converters and the proposed IDOC converter are presented. It is found that the proposed converter’s voltage gain is smaller than the other converters’ in step-down mode. Also, based upon the comparisons among the same kind and same number of components, the voltage and current stresses on the power switch of the proposed IDOC converter are less than or equal to those of the comparative converters, and the voltage stress on the charge pump capacitor and the switching device power rating of the proposed IDOC converter are always lower than those of other comparative converters. These advantages make component selection for the proposed converter much easier, and it can be used for industrial application. In order to check the behavior of the converter simulation is carried out in a MATLAB/SIMULINK. The simulation results validated the operation of the converter.
