Abstract

This work proposes the implementation of a bidirectional current-fed soft switched converter for solar photo voltaic system is examined and covered with information. Effective function of the bi-directional buck-boost topology is guaranteed by continuous-duty buck-boost circuit under large voltage spectrum. In battery charger mode, phase shift modulation and pulse width modulation control are employed. In order to allow the MOSFETs to have zero voltage switching, a feedforward loop was applied to the charging mode of the battery. Compared with the conventional bidirectional soft switched converter, this one would definitely be better suitable for designing such magnetic components. This bi directional converter is implemented for a solar structure and experiment results are obtained.
