A Novel Mathematical Analysis for Electrical Specifications of Step-up Converter
MetadataShow full item record
This study presents a unique comprehensive mathematical model for both transient and steady states of the step-up power converter in order to structure physical aspects evaluations. The main disadvantage of different existence mathematical models such as impedance, small signal analysis and steady space average models is that they use numerical analysis methods or simplification solutions that lead to approximate analysis. Therefore, the physical behaviours of the system such as inductor current, output voltage and physical effects of components will not be accurately predictable. This study presents very accurate equations and all aspects of the structure are predictable. In our research, this issue is investigated in Laplace and Z domains using the output-to-input transfer function calculations, and the effect of converter circuit elements is assessed using equations obtained. For extracting the transfer function, initial values are calculated in the Z domain and based on the final value theorem, converter output voltage and input current have been calculated. Effects of converter components on capacitor voltage and input current ripples have been analysed and reported. In the final step, results of the theoretical analysis were confirmed by simulation results obtained in MATLAB/SIMULINK environment and implementation on a prototype in laboratory scales.
