This study proposes a new high voltage gain and high-efficiency DC-DC converter to interface renewable energy resources into dc nanogrid. The proposed topology is formed by a coupled inductor to achieve high voltage gain and low stress on the active switch. The switch voltage stress is significantly low compared to the output voltage. Thus, efficiency is improved by utilizing a low voltage rating MOSFET. Furthermore, the utilization of couple inductor eliminated the reverse recovery losses of diodes. The converter consists of the least number of components that decrease the overall system cost. The steady-state operation and analysis of the proposed converter are discussed comprehensively. The experimental performance is verified by building and testing a prototype in the laboratory. The experimental results prove the consistency with the theoretical analysis. The converter depicts a peak efficiency of 97.10% in the laboratory.
