PV to PEV Power Transfer for Standalone Solar Power System

Published by Burak AKIN, Yıldız Technical University Abstract. In this paper, efficient PV to PEV’s li–ion battery power transfer is investigated. Dual-interleaved boost topology is applied to the PV to PEV direct power transfer system as DC-DC converter. Proposed dual interleaved boost topology is reached 97 % total efficiency with inversely coupled input boost inductances.Continue reading “PV to PEV Power Transfer for Standalone Solar Power System”
