The switched-capacitor (SC) converters are ideal switching-mode power supplies for consumer portable electronic devices due to their nature of being light weight, small size, and high-power density. However, they suffer from a discontinuous input-current waveform with large di/dt, which leads to significant electromagnetic interference emission. This paper proposes a configuration of SC converters connected in parallel, with their inputs and outputs interleaved and adaptively controlled. The interleaving operation is performed by using an original type of control in which both the capacitors' charging time TON and switching frequency are adjusted to get the line and load regulation. It is shown that, for a given range of variation of the supply voltage and load, there always exists a solution [TON, TS] that assures both output-voltage regulation and perfect interleaving. Experimental results are provided to validate the feasibility of the proposed scheme. Precise interleaving, and good line and load regulation are maintained for all the designated range, including the transient periods.
