In this paper, a DC–DC converter topology with a zero voltage and zero current switching control technique [8] has been proposed for solar PV applications. The proposed converter combine the feature of buck–boost operation capability, at the same time, it can carry out zero voltage and zero current switching on the primary side of the converter transformer. The proposed work has been carried out using Matlab/Simulink and results are presented.
