A new multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) dc-dc converter topology is presented. The proposed topology can interface between diversified energy sources and diode-clamped multilevel inverter. Regulating series output voltages for the dc-link of the diode-clamped multilevel inverter, diversifying energy sources, improving availability of the energy source, employing a single inductor, and cost effectiveness are the advantages of the proposed MIMO converter. The steady state operation of the converter is characterized and verified by numerical switch-level simulation.
