Battery/Ultra-capacitor based electrical vehicles (EV) combine two energy sources with different voltage levels and current characteristics. This paper focuses on design and control of a multiple input DC/DC converter, to regulate output voltage from different inputs. The proposed multi-input converter is capable of bi-directional operation and is responsible for power diversification and optimization. A fixed switching frequency strategy is considered to control its operating modes. A portion… CONTINUE READING
