Abstract

Efficiency is one of the most important aspects to consider in the design of electric systems for mobility applications. In this study, the interface between the storage system and the inverter is considered. This interface is a step-up DC-DC converter aimed to boost the energy storage voltage to the inverter voltage. This paper introduces the analysis, design, and comparison of four topologies of the interleaved boost DC-DC converter evaluating the effect of magnetic four-phase coupled inductorcoupling in multi-phase and modular circuits. Additionally, a novel idea of a four-phase coupled inductor is presented. These power DC-DC converters are designed in order to find the suitable arrangement with the best efficiency.
