Single-Input–Multi-Output (SIMO) Converter for Nano-Grids Applications
Proceedings of the IEEE SoutheastCon
A nano-grid is a smaller version of a smart grid with the ability to function as separate power generator. This modification to the typical smart grid allows for a system focusing on single load with using special converters. This grid takes the concept of separate loads and uses it in its ability to multiple applications. This paper exemplifies the success in the converter and its use in a nano-grid system. This positive result shows a system that is both stable and reliable in regards to power supply. A DC-DC modified converter is designed, this converter is a single-input-multi-output converter that takes the process of boosting its inputs into 3 outputs respectively of various higher voltages. Furthermore a coupled inductor process is used to reduce conduction losses as well as include soft clamping processes. This converter is implemented with the use of MATLAB/Simulink. It can be concluded that the converter has a high step-up ratio, highly efficient converter with varying output voltages.
