Abstract

In this paper, a single-phase switched boost inverter is proposed. Dividing converted sources is a very popular technique in recent years, as well as the demand for high output voltage quality by the use of a small number of switches. The analysis and simulation study revealed that this inverter has a good potential in terms of conversion quality (high voltage gain, low total harmonic distortion (THD), low cost, simple structure, and easy to control) and can be used in photovoltaic applications as well as in embedded systems. Experimental results verify the functioning principle of the presented topology but this new topology needs more improvements to reach exactly the simulation results.
