An improved multidevice interleaved boost converter with novel multiplex controller for fuel cell

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Mass commercialization of fuel cells (FC) and its usage in transportation requires that the FC technology to be competitive with regard to performance and cost, while meeting efficiency and emissions targets. Therefore, fuel cell output current ripple that may shorten FC lifespan, worsen FC efficiency and reduce the FC output capacity need to be addressed. In this paper, an improved multi-device interleaved boost converter (MDIBC) with novel multiplex controller topology is designed to further reduce the input current and output voltage ripples, without increasing the number of MDIBC switching devices. The Matlab/Simulink behaviour model of the improved MDIBC with novel multiplex controller and conventional MDIBC circuit are developed in the simulation studies. The proposed improved MDIBC design is then compared with the conventional MDIBC and its performance is verified.
