Abstract: With different versions of inverters available, a control of VHF resonant boost dc-dc converter is described in detailed in this paper. Though, a classical Class- Φ inverter is well documented in the literature, this is a new version and coupled to resonant rectifier. The twin aspect of any design of resonant boost topology is to mainly feature low device voltage stress and to have high efficiency over wide range of loads. Increased switching frequency allows smaller size of the passive components, allowing one to use air-core magnetic, and thereby reducing core loss. The output is regulated by MPPT controller. The performance analysis was carried out on MATLAB/Simulink platform and performance characteristics are presented along with the values of components.
Keywords: Class- Φ Inverter, Resonant Rectifier, MPPT Controller, Zero-Voltage-Switching (ZVS).
