For a wide output voltage ranged thermoelectric generator, it is necessary to have a DC-DC converter that allows voltage boost and buck functions. In this paper, a boost-buck cascade DC-DC converter is adopted to allow input voltage range from near 0 V to 25 V and output voltage range from 12.3 V to 16.5 V, needed for vehicle battery charging. To ensure a smooth operating mode change, a modified maximum power point tracking controller is used to control the first stage converter duty cycle… CONTINUE READING
