By connecting the PV solar cell can in series to produce the
high voltages but, the voltage might effect by shadow effect.
If any one of the PV cell is broken ,the PV array leads to
shutdown the grid.
Those problems can be overcome by using the converters(DC-

The coupled inductor and switched capacitor a technique is proposed in high
voltage step up dc-dc converter.
The capacitors are charged in parallel and discharged in series by the coupled
inductor, stacking on the output capacitor.
On performing this project can achieve high step up voltage gain in which
the input dc voltage is 24 volts and we will get output voltage 400 volts with
appropriate duty ratio.
Besides the voltage spike on the main switch can be clamped, therefore
conduction losses are reduced and hence efficiency will be increased.
Renewable energy systems are
more and more widely used to
provide electric energy.
Energy derived from natural
processes that are replenished at a
faster rate than they are consumed.

Renewable energy sources in over
Modernly converters are classified into two types
Non isolation converters(basic):
Fly back converter
Comparison Of Converters
Buck converter: step-down, has one switch, simple, high
efficiency greater than 90%, provides one polarity output voltage
and unidirectional output current.
Boost converter: step-up, has one switch, simple, high
efficiency, provides one polarity output voltage.
Buck-boost converter: step-up/step-down, has one switch,
simple, high efficiency, provides output voltage polarity reversal.
Fly back converter: four-quadrant operation, has multiple
switches, can be used in regenerative braking.

Design & Analysis
The DC to DC converter is used to step up the given input
Input voltage is 24V as mentioned in the proposed converter.
That volage is step up by using the converter into 400V DC
supply without any ripples at load.

Why because, my project is
power electronics oriented
To have large high step-up voltage gain, some converters have
been proposed which use the coupled-inductor as a transformer
in fly back and forward converter.
To get large efficiency of converter, reduces the conduction
losses and voltage spikes occurs across the power switch.
