Effective photovoltaic power conditioning requires efficient power conversion and accurate maximum power point tracking to counteract the effects of panel mismatch, shading, and general variance in power output during a daily cycle. In this paper, the authors propose an integrated boost resonant converter with low component count, galvanic isolation, simple control, as well as high efficiency across a wide input and load range. Provided is a discussion of the converter synthesis, key operational features, converter design procedure, and loss analysis, as well as experimental verification by way of a 250-W prototype with a California Energy Commission efficiency of 96.8%.
