In recent years, the energy crisis is more predominant because of the expansion of the human population. So researchers have moved towards alternative energy resources for sustainable development. Power conversion requisites high gain in most renewable applications. This paper discusses a DC-DC converter with a high step-up ratio that renders efficacy, elevated voltage gain and curtail voltage stress. Here, we incorporate the merits of Active Switched Inductor (ASL)and step-up two capacitor cell (SU2C)strategies to attain lifted gain in the DC-DC converter for PV applications. The scope of this preferred converter is germane towards harnessing energy from the solar array to grid-tied applications. The introduced converter encompasses active switches, step-up capacitors inductors, and to escalate the voltage gain. One of the methods of Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) is Perturb and Observe (P&O), which is accustomed to secure the best results of the proposed converter. The propounded converter is validated using MATLAB/SIMULINK.
