Environmentally friendly technologies such as photovoltaic’s and fuel cells are DC sources. In the current power infrastructure, this necessitates converting the power supplied by these devices into AC for transmission and distribution which adds losses and complexity. Now-a-days, due to power failure, there is a great used for UPS systems in our homes or in workplaces and also the amount of DC loads in our buildings is ever-increasing with computers, televisions, and other electronics entering our workplaces. This forces another conversion of the AC power to DC, adding further low power ratings, losses and complexity. Due to low power rating of the system, it is very important to reduce number of converter stages and use the generated energy efficiently. Therefore, instead of using different dedicated converters from various uni-directional renewable sources, this paper proposes a single stage boost converter with multiple inputs that can efficiently decimate generated energy. The proposed converter works under various operating modes which are discussed in this paper. This paper proposes the use of a DC distribution system.
